Ella Fitzgerald – Strike Up The Band lyrics

Let the drums roll out
Let the trumpet call
While the people shout
"strike up the band"

Hear the cymbals ring
Callin' one and all
To the martial swing,
Strike up the band

There is work to be done, to be done
There's a war to be won, to be won
Come, you son of a son of a gun,
Take your stand

Fall in line, yea a bow
Come along, let's go
Hey, leader, strike up the band!

There is work to be done, to be done
There's a war to be won, to be won
Come, you son of a son of a gun,
Take your stand

Fall in line, yea a bow
Come on, let's go
Hey, leader, strike up
Hey, leader, strike up
Hey, leader, strike up the band
