The Toy Trumpet: Lyrics

Music by Raymond Scott (1937)
Lyrics added by Sidney D. Mitchell and Lew Pollack (1938)
Performed by Shirley Temple, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (1938)

Have you heard
Have you heard
There's a new tooter in
With the Tin pan parade
Pass the word
Pass the word
'Cause it's some toy trumpet brigade

Come along
Come along
If you're soon enough
You'll hear him do his stuff
Hurry up
Hurry up
They will soon be here
They're getting nearer

Here they come
Here they come
Hear the hum of the drum
Of the Tin pan parade
Better run
Better run
'Cause it's some toy trumpet brigade

Here they are, there's the leader
Passing by , aint he grand
He's the star, he's the leader of the band
There he goes with his trumpet
Tootin' high, tootin' low
When he blows he's a rootin', tootin' dandy

Tootin' low
Tootin' high
He's a new tooter in
With the Tin pan parade
There they go
Passing by
That was some toy trumpet brigade
