Seventy-six, Trombones, Seventy-six, Trombones,
Seventy-six, Trombones, trombones, trombones!

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 virtuosos
The cream of every 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 horns of every shape and kind

There were copper bottom tympani in horse platoon
Thundering, thundering all along the way
Double bell euphoniums and big bassoons
Each bassoon having his big, fat say!
There were fifty mounted cannon in the battery
Thundering, thundering, louder than before
Clarinets of every size and trumpeters who'd improvise
A full octave higher than the score

Seventy-six, seventy-six 'bones led the parade
When the order to march rang out loud and clear
Starting off with a big bang bong on a Chinese gong
By a big bang banger at the rear
Seventy-six 'bones hit counter point
While a hundred and ten cornets played the air
When I modestly took my place as the one and only bass
And I oom pahed, oom pahed, oom pah pahed
Oom pahed up and down the square
