Alexander's Ragtime Band

Album: Great American Composers (1911)
  • Come on and hear, come on and hear Alexander's Ragtime Band
    Come on and hear, come on and hear 'bout the best band in the land
    They can play a bugle call like you never heard before
    So natural that you want to go to war

    That's just the bestest band what am, oh honey lamb
    Come on along, come on along, let me take you by the hand
    Up to the man, up to the man who's the leader of the band
    And if you care to hear the Swanee River played in ragtime
    Come on and hear, come on and hear Alexander's Ragtime Band

    Come on and hear, come on and hear Alexander's Ragtime Band
    Come on and hear, come on and hear it's the best band in the land
    They can play a bugle call like you never heard before

    That's just the bestest band what am, oh honey lamb
    Come on along, come on along, let me take you by the hand
    Up to the man, I'm talking about the man, the leader of the band
    And if you care to hear the Swanee River played in ragtime
    Come on and hear, come on and hear Alexander's Ragtime Band
