"MERRY MARCHING BAND"

Chorus 1
Oh, it's a sight to see them play,
All marching through the town, it's grand!
Music making, cymbal shaking!
Our merry marching band!

Chorus 2
Up and down, through the town,
The sight to see them play is grand!
Music making, cymbal shaking!
Our merry marching band!

Verse 1
The drum beats out the groove,
The player blows her horn,
The cymbals clash, the trumpets sound,
And a new song is born!

Verse 2
The flute's notes float on the air,
The clarinet sounds sweet,
The trombone's melody so fine,
The snare drum keeps the beat!

Chorus 3
There's always a new song to hear
God loves to hear us cheer,
Melodies that greet our ears,
Our merry marching band!

Verse 3
The tuba's notes are sounding,
The bass drum steady, pounding,
The leader says, "Keep marching on!"
Keeping time with his baton.
Marching together without a fault,
Un til his whistle signals "Halt"!

Chorus 4
Oh, it's a sight to see them play,
A-marching through the town, it's grand!
Music making, cymbal shaking,
Our merry marching band!

Music making, cymbal shaking
Our merry marching band!
Music making, cymbal shaking
Our merry marching band!
