BERTIE Who's the man you've all been sitting there anticipating? Whos' the man with his instrument ready, willing and waiting? Who's the man for whom your breath has been eagerly baiting? If I hadn't already confessed it You'd no doubt already have guessed it Banjo boy, banjo boy, play a number for me Won't you play that melody? When you start your plain' - Mama starts a-swayin' She's right there with 'em - stompin' that rhythym Banjo boy, banjo boy, play the razzamatazz You're the sunny southland's king You set Dixie hummin' it - when you started strummin' it See those fingers goin' When you start to syncopate Songbirds seem to orchestrate The Swanee stops it's flowin' Just hear him play Who can plunk your heartstrings full of joy That's banjo boy

COMPANY Hear him go Don't you know Love him so Let him swing And do his thing He's the king Ring-a-ding

BERTIE & COMPANY Banjo boy, banjo boy, you're the musical sun In those southern sunny skies Feet will start their fidgets - see those magic digits Hands are a clappin' - fingers a snappin' Banjo boy, banjo boy, play that favourite tune That the old folks love to sing Can't you hear the people cry Wann see those fingers fly

COMPANY Listen to him playin' Can't you hear those children roar Dixie's shoutin' out for more Hear the steamboats blowin' Eight to the bar Who's that cotton pickin' hunk of joy? That golden kid that fashion can't destroy? Whose name they shout from Maine to Illinois? That's banjo boy! Banjo boy!
