Let the trumpet call
While the people shout

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

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!

Hey, leader, strike up
Hey, leader, strike up
Hey, leader, strike up the band
