In another thread about a different song, a guest asked for lyrics to THE VERY BEST BAND, sung by Sharon, Lois, and Bram.

I found that Sharon, Lois, and Bram sing THE VERY BEST BAND on their album "Singing & Swinging" (1980, reissued 2005).

Pam, they sang it on one of their 'Elephant Show' programmes and we have it somewhere but I'm not sure where.
How soon do you need it?

We've identified the programme that includes this song. But my daughter has all the discs at her place.
Tomorrow.

OK, I've found a site with about 100 or more of their lyrics here
but it doesn't have the one you're looking for.
So we're just playing through our old recordings of The Elephant Show and the granddaughter is enjoying them too - I recorded them for her Mum over 20 years ago.
There are some bits that are hard to hear so the words mightn't be quite right. I hope you have an idea of the tune because each verse is slightly different. The first verse is sung all the way through the song, not just as a chorus but as part of the accompaniment.

The very best band

We have a band, the very best band,
In all the land, in all the land, in all the land x2
(Repeat throughout the rest of the song as accompaniment )

We have an electric bass, it's played with taste,
It takes the place of a ju ba ju    x2

The piccolo can never play alone(or 'a low') 'cos all the notes it hits are high
And that's the reason why I will never play the piccolo x2

We have a trombone, slide trombone
Trom bom bom bom bom bom slide trombone   x2

And as the trumpeter starts to play so staccato
I can feel my knees shake obligato
Isn't it grand that glorious trumpet sound   x2

We have a tinkley plunky and a little bit funky
We got a rickety ragtime piano   x2


Good luck with that!
Cheers,
Robyn

Found a mistake - the piccolo verse should be:

The piccolo can never play a low note..........

A piccolo can never play a low note.
All the notes it plays are high.
And that's the reason, I prefer to play a piccolo.

That's the version I had as as child. Though listening to different publications, I noticed on my son's newer dvd, some of the songs have different lyrics.
