Lyrics

Oh my honey Oh my honey You better hurry and let's go down there Ain't you goin'? Ain't you goin'? To that leaderman, ragged meter man Oh honey Oh honey Let me take you to Alexander's Grand stand brass band Ain't you coming 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 the bugle call like you've never heard before Sounds so natural that you'll wanna go to war That's just the best band in the land Oh honey lamb Come on along Come on along Let me take you by the hand Up to the man Up to the man Who is 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 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 Listen to the bugle call Just the best band in the land Oh honey lamb Come on along Come on along Let me take you by the hand Up to the man Up to the man Who is 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
