25 Alexander’s Ragtime Band

Oh, ma honey, Oh ma Honey
Better hurry And lets meander
Ain’t you goin’, Ain’t you goin’’
To the leaderman ragged meter man?
Oh, ma honey, Oh, ma honey
Let me take you to Alexander’s grandstand 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 that am,
Honey lamb;

Come on along, come on along, Let me take you by the hand,
Up to the man, Up to the 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,
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, some how,
Better hurry along
Sing red words again
