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!
