Oh my honey,
Oh my honey,
Better hurry
And let's meander.

Ain'tcha goin'?
Ain'tcha goin?
To the leader man,
Ragged metre man?

Oh my honey,
Oh my honey,
Let me take you
To Alexander's
Grandstand,
Brass band,
Ain'tcha comin' along?

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.

Well they can play a bugle call
Like you've never heard before,
So natural that you
Wanna go to war,
That's just the bestest band what am,
My 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
That Swannie River played
In Ragtime,
Come on and hear,
Come on and hear,
Alexander's Ragtime Band!

(Intrumental Ragtime)

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.

Well they can play a bugle call
Like you've never heard before,
So natural that you
Wanna go to war,
That's just the bestest band what am,
My 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
That Swannie River played
In Ragtime,
Come on and hear,
Come on and hear,
Alexander's Ragtime Band!

Come and hear the brass band!
