Lyrics for '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
They can play a bugle call
Like you’ve never heard before
So natural that you want to hear some more
That’s just the bestest band what am
Honey lamb.

Come on along
Come on along
Let me take you by the hand
Up to the man
Up to the man
Who’s the leader of the band
And if you care to hear the "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
They can play a bugle call
Like you’ve never heard before
So natural that you want to hear some more
That’s just the bestest band what am
Honey lamb.

Come on along
Come on along
Let me take you by the hand
Up to the man
Up to the man
Who’s 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.
