No. 11 - Song - Van Vuyt and Chorus

MIDI File

Van Vuyt: Is there any other man so envied in the land
As a proud conductor of a military band?
Whether with the brass or reeds, or with the fife and drums--
So alert is he that ev'ry melody he hums!
Chorus: Yes, he hums!
Van Vuyt: Now then, drums!
With a tra! lal, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
Tra! lal, la, la, la, la,
Tra! lal, la, la, la, la,
With a tra! lal, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
With a tra! lal, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
Chorus: With his tra! lal, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
Tra! lal, la, la, la, la,
Tra! lal, la, la, la, la,
With his tra! lal, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
With his tra! lal, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
   
Van Vuyt: With his bâton in his hand his "tempos" he will show--
Double forte that will mean, or pianissimo.
When he plays in minor key the ladies round him sigh;
Still conducting, on them all he turns his loving eye.
Chorus: Loving eye!
Van Vuyt: Rather shy!
With a tra! lal, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
Tra! lal, la, la, la, la,
Tra! lal, la, la, la, la,
With a tra! lal, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
With a tra! lal, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
Chorus: With his tra! lal, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
Tra! lal, la, la, la, la,
Tra! lal, la, la, la, la,
With his tra! lal, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
With his tra! lal, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
   
Van Vuyt:   There is one sweet soul who's in the audience always,
She will even turn up on the rainiest of days;
Suddenly he gazes on her with a freezing glare,
Who is that young gentleman so close beside her there?
Chorus: Beside her there?
Van Vuyt: How she dare!
With a tra! lal, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
Tra! lal, la, la, la, la,
Tra! lal, la, la, la, la,
With a tra! lal, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
With a tra! lal, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
Chorus: With his tra! lal, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
Tra! lal, la, la, la, la,
Tra! lal, la, la, la, la,
With his tra! lal, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
With his tra! lal, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
