Alexander's Ragtime Band
(Svensk text)
	
				T&M: Irving Berlin

Oh, ma honey, Oh, ma honey,
Better hurry and let's meander,
Ain't you goin,' Ain't you goin'
To the leader man, ragged meter man?
Oh, mahoney, Oh, ma honey,
Let me take you to Alexander's
grandstand, brass band,
Ain't you comin' along?

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,
Honeey 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 care to hear the Swanee River
played in ragtime,
Come on and hear, Come on and hear
Alexander's ragtime band.

Oh, ma honey, Oh, ma honey,
there's a fiddle with notes that screeches.
Like a chicken, Like a chicken,
and the clarinet is a colored pet,
Come and listen, Come and listen,
To a classical band what's peaches,
come now, somehow, Better hurry along.
