Alexander's Ragtime Band

This song is by Billy Murray.

Oh ma honey, oh ma honey
Better hurry and let's meander
Ain't you goin', ain't you goin'?
To the leader man, ragged meter man?
Oh ma honey, oh ma honey
Let me take you to Alexander's
Grand stand brass band
Ain't you 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!
They can play a bugle call like you never heard before
So natural that you want to go to war
That's just the bestest band what am, aw honey lamb
Come on along, come on along
Let me take you by the hand
Up to the man, the funny man
Who's the leader of the band!
And if you care to hear the Swanee River played in ragtime
Come on and hear, come on and hear
Alexander's Ragtime Band!

Oh ma honey, oh ma honey
There's a fiddle with notes that screeches
Just like a chicken, like a chicken
And the clarinet, is a coloured pet
Come and listen, come and listen
To a classical band what's peaches
Come now, somehow
Better hurry 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!
They can play a bugle call like you never heard before
So natural that you want to go to war
That's just the bestest band what am, aw honey lamb
Come on along, come on along
Let me take you by the hand
Up to the man, the funny man
Who's the leader of the band!
And if you care to hear the Swanee River played in ragtime
Come on and hear, come on and hear
Alexander's Ragtime Band!

Ain't that just the bestest band what am, aw honey lamb

Come on and hear, come on and hear
Alexander's Ragtime Band
