Doug,

You're after a musical called "Where's Charley?" book by George Abbott, music & lyrics by Frank Loesser. Based on Charley's Aunt, by George Abbott, the show also gave us "Once in Love With Amy" , a much requested speciality of Ray Bolger.

One of the commercial music publishers will have this is print. The show is performed frequently by high schools, colleges, and community theatres. Dave

It's been over 30 years since I played the drum in the New Ashmolean Marching Society And Student Conservatory Band in a production of Where's Charlie, but here's my best shot at the lyrics:

Though they march only slightly out of tempo
Though they play only slightly out of tune
Though there's just a suggestion in the oboe
Of the sound of a hound beneath the moon
Though the trumpet's a little independent
And the drummer is not exactly choice
Still, the old college spirit is upon me
And I shout every time at the top of my voice
For the New Ashmolean
Marching Society
And Student Conservatory Band
Yes, the New Ashmolean
Could have beat Napoleon
With all those deadly instruments at hand
There are those who favor the philharmonic flavor
But to me the finest in the land
Is the New Ashmolean
Marching Society
And Student Conservatory Band

Yes, the New Ashmolean
Marching Society
And Student Conservatory Band
If you're analytical
Sensitive or critical
You'll like it more the farther back you stand
But to me, it's bully, it satisfies me fully
Just to hear those trumpets close at hand
Of the New Ashmolean
Marching Society
And Student Conservatory Band

This seems to be the first verse:

Here they come with the sunlight on the trumpets.
Here they come with the banners flying high.
In my throat I've a lumpy sort of feeling,
And a bright gleam of pride is in my eye.
Here they come with the clarinets a-wailing.
Here they come rather bravely up the square,
And I know in a moment I'll be cheering,
And my fine Sunday hat will be high in the air
For the New Ashmolean Marching Society and Students' Conservatory Band.

Here are the complete lyrics, in the correct order:

Here they come with the sunlight on the trumpets.
Here they come with the banners flying high.
In my throat I've a lumpy sort of feeling,
And the bright gleam of pride is in my eye.
Here they come with the clarinets a-wailing.
Here they come rather bravely up the square,
And I know in a moment I'll be cheering,
And my fine Sunday hat will be high in the air
For the New Ashmolean Marching Society and Students Conservatory Band.

Yes the New Ashmolean
Could have beat Napoleon
With all those deadly instruments at hand
There are those who favor the philharmonic flavor
But to me the finest in the land
Is the New Ashmolean Marching Society and Students Conservatory Band.

Though they march only slightly out of tempo
Though they play just a trifle out of tune
Though there's just a suggestion in the oboe
Of the sound of a hound beneath the moon
Though the trombone's a little independent
And the drummer is not exactly choice
Still the old college spirit is upon me
And I shout every time at the top of my voice
For the New Ashmolean Marching Society and Students Conservatory Band.

If you're analytical
Sensitive or critical
You'll like it more the farther back you stand
But to me it's bully, it satisfies me fully
When I hear that thunder close at hand
From the New Ashmolean Marching Society and Students Conservatory Band.
