Julie Andrews - Do-re-mi
Tekst: Oscar Hammerstein II / Muziek: Richard Rodgers
(1965)






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
Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti
Oh, let 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-mi-fa-so-la-ti-do, so-do



Now children, do-re-mi-fa-so and so on
are only the tools we use to build a song
once you have these notes in your head
you can sing a million different tunes
by mixing them up, like this



So-do-la-fa-mi-do-re
Can you do that
So-do-la-fa-mi-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-mi-re



Do-mi-mi, mi-so-so, re-fa-fa, la-ti-ti
Do-mi-mi, 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-mi-do-re
Do-re-mi-fa
So-do-la-fa
So-la-ti
La-so-so-fa-mi-re
Ti-do
So-do
