Strike Up The Band Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Let the drums roll out
Let the trumpet call
While the people shout, "strike up the band"
Verse 2
Hear the cymbals ring
Calling one and all
To the martial swing, strike up the band
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
Form a line, oh, oh
Come on, let's go
Hey, leader, strike up the band!
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
Form a line, oh, oh
Come on, let's go
Hey, Mr. Leader,
Hey, Mr. Leader,
Please strike up the band!
