1
I will sing you a song of the old Singing School
And the sounds you there may hear;
Of the do, re, mi and the A, B, C,
And the voices ringing clear.
 
 
2
Sing the song with accent strong,
Loud and clear the tone prolong.

Do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, do;
'Tis the scale of C, you know.
Common, double, triple measures too,
Are among the many things we do.
