Hey Hey Popular

April 5, 2013


We thought it a jest or a jape or a joke

and sent out the word to our friends and our folk

to get on the web and to tick off a vote.

The likes kept growing and we counted the tote

as our people checked in with united voice

and gave us a win, number one, people's choice.

And much to our surprise

there really was a prize.

Whoopee ! It's a win !

With a bunch of young people new to the band

without our Drum Major, the best in the land

we lined up and Greg took us through the routine.

Formed up in order not a march card was seen

we played well from memory, formation was tight

and at the corner we turned left and not right.

And much to our delight

all that we did went right.

Woohoo ! It's a first !

The rest of the contest was tougher than that

as all of the bands want that old fireman's hat

so hard we all try and the standard is high.

The results come out and we try not to cry,

recalling rehearsals we hold back a tear,

we work hard for Bill and will be back next year.

And much to our dismay

it just was not our day.

Whooee ! Did our best !

Our solo musicians played well and had fun

trying for a good score and a place, number one

and they got places with two, four and no three.

Playing in the final was this day not to be

but young and not so young our guys did their best,

the solos are tricky and always a test.

And much to our relief

the afternoon was brief.

Whooha! Lets party !
