Lyrics
Let's start at the very beginning
A very good place to start
When you read you begin with

A.B.C.

When you sing you begin with do re mi

Do re mi

Do re mi
The first three notes just happen to be
Do re mi

Do re mi

Do re mi fa so la ti

Oh let's see if I can make it easier hm
Doe-a deer, a female deer
Ray-a drop of golden sun
Me-a name i call myself
Far-a long long way to run
Sew-a needle pulling thread
La-a note to follow so
Tea-a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to do oh oh oh

Do

A deer, a female deer

Re

A drop of golden sun

Mi

A name I call myself

Fa

A long long way to run

So-a needle pulling thread
La

A note to follow so
Te

A drink with jam and bread

That will bring us back to do

Doe-a deer, a female deer
Ray-a drop of golden sun
Me-a name i call myself
Far-a long long way to run

Sew-a needle pulling thread
La-a note to follow so
Tea-a drink with jam and bread

That will bring us back to do
Do re mi fa so la te do so do

Now children do re mi fa so and so on
Are only the tools we use to build a song
Onces you have these notes in your head
You can sing a million different tones by mixing them up
Like this, so do la fa mi do re
Can you do that

So do la fa mi do re

So do la ti do re do

So do la ti do re do

Now put it all together

So do la fa mi do re,
so do la ti do re do

Good

But it doesn't mean anything

So we put in the words.
One word per every note.

When you know the notes to sing
You can sing most anything

When you know the notes to sing
You can sing most anything

Doo

A deer, a female deer

Ree

A drop of golden sun

Mii

A name I call myself

Faa

A long long way to run

Soo

A needle pulling thread

La

A note to follow so

That will bring us back to doo
