MIDI File

Dorothy: Where's the music that is half so sweet —
Chorus: Ta ra ra, ta ta, Ta ra ra, ta ta, Ta ra ra, ta ta, ta!
Dorothy: As the trample of the soldiers' feet?
Chorus: Ta ra ra, ta ta, Ta ra ra, ta ta, Ta ra ra, ta ta, ta!
Dorothy: Come and listen to the march they play —
Chorus: Ta ra ra, ta ta, Ta ra ra, ta ta, Ta ra ra, ta ta, ta!
Dorothy: I can hear them from afar,
With their gay tarantara,
And I know they're coming nearer,
for they always pass this way.
Ta ra ta! Ta ra ta! Ta ra ta!
Oh, listen to the band!
How merrily they play!
"Oh, don't you think it grand?"
Hear ev'rybody say.
Oh, listen to the band!
Who doesn't love to hark
To the shout of "Here they come!"
And the banging of the drum?
Oh, listen to the soldiers in the park!
Chorus: Oh, listen to the band!
How merrily they play!
"Oh, don't you think it grand?"
Hear ev'rybody say.
Oh, listen to the band!
Who doesn't love to hark
To the shout of "Here they come!"
And the banging of the drum?
Oh, listen to the soldiers in the park!
   
Dorothy: How the children and the nursemaids run,
Chorus: Ta ra ra, ta ta, Ta ra ra, ta ta, Ta ra ra, ta ta, ta!
Dorothy: See their faces as they cry "What fun!"
Chorus: Ta ra ra, ta ta, Ta ra ra, ta ta, Ta ra ra, ta ta, ta!
Dorothy: Crowds are flocking from the Marble Arch,
Chorus: Ta ra ra, ta ta, Ta ra ra, ta ta, Ta ra ra, ta ta, ta!
Dorothy: And they race across the grass
Just to see the soldiers pass,
For there's magic in the music of a military march.
Ta ra ta! Ta ra ta! Ta ra ta!
Oh, listen to the band!
How merrily they play!
"Oh, don't you think it grand?"
Hear ev'rybody say.
Oh, listen to the band!
Who doesn't love to hark
To the shout of "Here they come!"
And the banging of the drum?
Oh, listen to the soldiers in the park!
Chorus: Oh, listen to the band!
How merrily they play!
"Oh, don't you think it grand?"
Hear ev'rybody say.
Oh, listen to the band!
Who doesn't love to hark
To the shout of "Here they come!"
And the banging of the drum?
Oh, listen to the soldiers in the park!
