seventy-six trombones led the big parade
with a hundred and ten cornets close at hand.
they were followed by rows and rows of the finest
sos, the cream of ev’ry famous band.
seventy-six trombones caught the morning sun
with a hundred and ten cornets right behind
there were more than a thousand reeds
springing up like weeds
there were h-rns of ev’ry shape and kind.
there were copper bottom tympani in horse platoons
thundering, thundering all along the way.
double bell euphoniums and big b-ssoons,
each b-ssoon having it’s big, fat say!
there were fifty mounted cannon in the battery
thundering, thundering louder than before
clarinets of ev’ry size
and trumpeters who’d improvise
a full octave higher than the score!
