   CHORUS

   Let the drums roll out
   Let the trumpet call
   While the people shout
   Strike up the band
   Hear the cymbals ring
   Calling one and all
   To the martial swing
   Strike up the band

There is work to be done
To be done
There's a war to be won
To be won
Come along, every-one, every-one
Take your stand
Fall in line, yea bo
Come along, let's go
Hey, leader (Hey, leader)
Hey, leader (Hey, leader)
Strike up the band
Strike up the band
Rum-ta-ta-tum-tum
Rum-ta-ta-tum-tum-tum
Heed the call
One and all
Hear the alarms
The call to arms

   CHORUS

Yankee doo
Doodleoo, Doodleoo
We'll come through
Doodleoo, Doodleoo
For the red, white, and blue
Doodleoo
Lend a hand
With our flag unfurled
For a brave new world
Hey, leader (Hey, leader)
Strike up the band
Strike up the band
Strike up the band
Hooray
