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 never heard before
So natural that you want to go to war

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 want to hear the Swanee River played in ragtime

Come on and hear, come on and hear
Alexander's Ragtime Band
