Do Re Mi (1959)
(w) Oscar Hammerstein II (m) Richard Rodgers (I) Musical: The Sound of Music by Mary Martin & The Children. Film version by Julie Andrews
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-mi

Do-re-mi, do-re-mi
The first three notes just happen to be
Do-re-mi, do-re-mi

Maria: Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti
(spoken) Let’s see if I can make it easy

Do, a deer, a female deer
Re, a drop of golden sun
Mi, a name I call myself
Fa, a long, long way to run
So, a needle pulling thread
La, a note to follow sew
Ti, a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to do-oh-oh-oh
