Stand up tall before the troops
They're marching in brigade
The first man in
A baton spin
Before the notes are laid

Hold the key in mighty grasp
The band is all in queue
Keep right in step
With time in check
In musical debut

Lead on this marching army
Percussion, Winds and Brass
The soldiers fears
From many years
Left slaughtered on the grass

Count out the beats and rhythm
Sign out the next attack
The music switch
With change of pitch
Performed without a crack

The fight is nearly over
The battle nearly won
The music end
Just as it's penned
Crescendo till it's done
