Let's start at the very beginning
A very good place to start
When you read you begin with A B C
When you sing you begin with Do Re Me
Do Re Me, Do Re Me
The first three notes just happen to be
Do Re Me, Do Re Me
Do Re Me Fa So La Ti
Let's see if I can make it easier

Doe, a deer, a female deer
Ray, a drop of golden sun
Me, a name I call myself
Far, a long long way to run
Sew, a needle pulling thread
La, a note to follow so
Tea, a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to Do, oh oh oh

Doe, a deer, a female deer
Ray, a drop of golden sun
Me, a name I call myself
Far, a long long way to run
Sew, a needle pulling thread
La, a note to follow so
Tea, a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to

Doe, a deer, a female deer
Ray, a drop of golden sun
Me, a name I call myself
Far, a long long way to run
Sew, a needle pulling thread
La, a note to follow so
Tea, a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to Do

Do Re Me Fa So La Ti Do, So Do

'Now children, Do Re Me Fa So and so on
Are only the tools we use to build a song
Once you have these notes in your heads'
'You can sing a million different tunes by mixing them up
Like this'

So Do La Fa Me Do Re
'Can you do that?'
So Do La Fa Me Do Re
So Do La Ti Do Re Do
So Do La Ti Do Re Do
'Now, put it all together'

So Do La Fa Mi Do Re
So Do La Ti Do Re Do
Good
'But it doesn't mean anything?'
'So we put in words'
'One word for every note, like this'

When you know the notes to sing
You can sing most anything
Together
When you know the notes to sing
You can sing most anything

Doe, a deer, a female deer
Ray, a drop of golden sun
Me, a name I call myself
Far, a long long way to run
Sew, a needle pulling thread
La, a note to follow so
Tea, a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to Do

Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do
Do Ti La So Fa Me Re
Do Me Me
Me So So
Re Fa Fa
La Ti Ti
Do Me Me
Mi So So
Re Fa Fa
La Ti Ti

When you know the notes to sing
You can sing most anything

Doe, a deer, a female deer
Ray, a drop of golden sun
Me, a name I call myself
Far, a long long way to run
Sew, a needle pulling thread
La, a note to follow so
Tea, a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to

So Do La Fa Me Do Re
So Do La Fa
La So Fa Me Re
Ti Do
So Do
