Do-Re-Mi

This song is by Julie Andrews.

Maria
Let's start at the very beginning
A very good place to start
When you read, you begin with...

Greta
A-B-C

Maria
When you sing, you begin with do-re-mi

Children
Do-re-mi

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

Children
Do-re-mi

Maria
Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti...
Oh, let's see if I can make it easier. Um...

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-oh-oh-oh

Maria and Children
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

Maria
That will bring us back to doe...

Children
...A deer, a female deer
Ray, a drop of golden sun
Me, a name I call myself
Far, a long, long way to run

Maria and Children
Sew, a needle pulling thread
La, a note to follow so
Tea, a drink with jam and bread...

Maria
That will bring us back to doe!

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 heads, you can sing a million different tunes by mixing them up...
Like this:


So do la fa mi do re
Can you do that?
Children
So do la fa mi do re
Maria
So do la ti do re do
Children
So do la ti do re do

Maria
Now, put it all together!

Maria and Children
So do la fa mi do re
So do la ti do re do

Maria
Good!

Bridget
But it doesn't mean anything
Maria
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...!

Maria and Children
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 doe

Maria and Children
(Variously):
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
Maria
(Overlapping pattern) :
When you know the notes to sing
You can sing most...

Maria and Children
...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 (so do)
Re (la fa)
Mi (mi do)
Fa (re)
So (so do)
La (la fa)
Ti (la so, fa mi re)
Ti do!

Children
So do!
