"Our Band"

  We come with our singing and playing,
A-marching down the street.
Now what can the music be saying
To our marching feet?
  Rat-ta-ta-tat, rat-ta-ta-tat,
Hear how the snare drums play rat-ta-ta-tat.
  Ta-ta-ta-ta, ta-ta-ta-ta,
Hear how the trombone plays ta-ta-ta-ta.
  Too-too-too-toot, too-too-too-toot,
Hear how the trumpet plays too-too-too-toot.
