No. 19 - Trio - Joy, Hughie and Meebles - "It's the drum!"

MIDI File

Joy: The girls all listen,
And their bright eyes glisten,
When they hear the big brass band!
Meebles: They know it's coming
When the man starts drumming
With a whack from either hand!
Hughie: The trombone follows,
And the brass he swallows,
Till you wonder when he'll stop.
Meebles: And the fife and cornet
Seem to think they've torn it,
All: But the drum comes out on top!
It's the drum! It's the drum!
For it keeps the whole lot going,
Beating time to the chime
As the cymbals clash and clang!
It's the drum-- rum-ti-tum!
When the whole brass band is blowing,
But the trombone shover
Has to cut for cover
When the drummer does his bim, bom, bang!
Chorus: It's the drum! It's the drum!
For it keeps the whole lot going,
Beating time to the chime
As the cymbals clash and clang!
It's the drum-- rum-ti-tum!
When the whole brass band is blowing,
But the trombone shover
Has to cut for cover
When the drummer does his bim, bom, bang!
   
Hughie: I think there's no boy
Like the tender oboe;
And the clarinet has charm.
Meebles: A chap can wangle
With the gay triangle
Till it's like a fire alarm!
Joy: There's no one better
Than a flageoletter,
And a flute will make me sob!
Meebles: But although they hammer hard,
They will all cry "Kamerad,"
All: When the drum gets on his job!
It's the drum! It's the drum!
For it keeps the whole lot going,
Beating time to the chime
As the cymbals clash and clang!
It's the drum-- rum-ti-tum!
When the whole brass band is blowing,
But the trombone shover
Has to cut for cover
When the drummer does his bim, bom, bang!
Chorus: It's the drum! It's the drum!
For it keeps the whole lot going,
Beating time to the chime
As the cymbals clash and clang!
It's the drum-- rum-ti-tum!
When the whole brass band is blowing,
But the trombone shover
Has to cut for cover
When the drummer does his bim, bom, bang!
