VERSE 1:

Oh, ma hon-ey, oh, ma hon-ey, bet-ter hur-ry and let's me-an-der

Ain't you go-in'? Ain't you go-in'? To the lea-der-man, rag-ged me-ter man?

Oh, ma hon-ey, oh, ma hon-ey, Let me take you to Al-ex-an-der's

Grand stand brass band, ain't you com-in' a-long?

CHORUS:

Come on and hear! Come on and hear! Al-ex-an-der's rag-time band!

Come on and hear! Come on and hear! It's the best band in the land!

They can play a bu-gle call like you nev-er heard be-fore

So nat-u-ral that you want to go to war

That's just the best-est band what am, oh, ma hon-ey lamb

Come on a-long, come on a-long, let me take you by the hand

Up to the man, up to the man, who's the lead-er of the band

And if you care to hear the Swa-nee Riv-er played in rag-time

Come on and hear, come on and hear,

Al-ex-an-der's Rag-Time Band.

VERSE 2:

Oh, ma hon-ey, oh, ma hon-ey, there's a fid-dle with notes that scree-ches,

Like a chick-en, like a chick-en, and the clar-i-net is a col-ored pet

Come and list-en, come and list-en, to a class-i-cal band what's pea-ches

Come now, some-how, bet-ter hur-ry a-long!

CHORUS:

Come on and hear! Come on and hear! Al-ex-an-der's rag-time band!

Come on and hear! Come on and hear! It's the best band in the land!

They can play a bu-gle call like you nev-er heard be-fore

So nat-u-ral that you want to go to war

That's just the best-est band what am, oh, ma hon-ey lamb

Come on a-long, come on a-long, let me take you by the hand

Up to the man, up to the man, who's the lead-er of the band

And if you care to hear the Swa-nee Riv-er played in rag-time

Come on and hear, come on and hear,

Al-ex-an-der's Rag-Time Band
