Strike Up The Band

Strike Up The Band
(Ira Gershwin, George Gershwin)

Tid-Bettes: Bette performed this song at a tribute show to Ira Gershwin in 1975.

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, you son of a son of a gun
Take your stand

Fall in line, yea a bow
Come along, let’s go
Hey, leader, strike up the band
