Meredith Willson - 76 Trombones Lyrics

  • 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 ev'ry 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 ev'ry shape and kind.
  • There were copper bottom tympani in horse platoons,
  • 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 eve'ry size and trumpeters who'd improvise
  • a full octave higher than the score.
  • Seventy six trombones led the big 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 bonger at the rear.
  • Seventy six trombones hit the counter point,
  • while a hundred and ten cornets played the air.
  • Then I modestly took my place as the one and only bass,
  • and I oompahed up and down the square.
