  • Let the drums roll out
    Let the trumpet call
    While the people shout "Strike up the band"
    Hear the cymbals ring
    Calling' one and all
    To the martial swing, strike up the band
    There is work to be done, to be done
    Let's have fun, fun, fun
    You son of a gun of a gun, take your stand
    Form a line, oh, oh
    Come on, let's go
    Hey, leader, strike up the band!
    There is work to be done, to be done
    Let's have fun, fun, fun
    Come on, son of a gun of a gun, take your stand
    Form a line, oh, oh
    Come on, let's go
    Hey, Mr. Leader, (2x)
    Please strike up the band! Writer/s: ANTOINE DOMINO, DAVE BARTHOLOMEW
