Do-Re-Mi

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

Gretel
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!.
[spoken]
Oh, let's see if I can make it easier.
[sung]
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 sew,
Tea, a drink with jam and bread!
That will bring us back to do oh-oh-oh!

Gretel
Doe!

Maria
A deer, a female deer.

two kids
Ray!

Maria
A drop of golden sun.

three
Me!

Maria
A name I call myself.

four kids
Far!

Maria
A long, long way to run!

All
Sew, a needle pulling thread.
La, a note to follow sew.
Tea, a drink with jam and bread.
And that will bring us back to doe!

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

All
Sew! A needle pulling thread.
La, a note to follow sew.
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!
[spoken]
Now, children, Do-re-mi-fa-so
And so on, are only the tools you use to build a song.
Once you have these notes in your heads
You can sing a million diff'rent tunes by mixing them up.
Like this:
[sung] So, do, la, fa, me, do, re.
[Spoken]
Can you do that?

Kids
So, do, la, fa, me, do, re.

Maria
So, do, la, ti, do, re, do.

Kids
So, do, la, ti, do, re, do.

Maria
[spoken] Now, put it all together!

All
[sung] So, do, la, fa, me, do, re.
So, do, la, ti, do, re, do!

Maria
[spoken] Good!

Louisa
But it doesn't mean anything!

Maria
So we put in words.
One word for every note.
Like this:
[sung] When you know the notes to sing,
You can sing most anything! [Together]
