Who's that com -ing?  Who's that strum -ming?  That's The Man With The Ban -jo.
For a pen -ny, he'll play an -y song that's hap -py and gay.
Folks all smile and stop a while, be -cause The Man With The Ban -jo,
Makes their troub -les, burst like bub -les chas -ing wor -ries a way.
See the child -ren run -ning af -ter, while he plays his mer -ry song.
All their hearts are filled with laugh -ter, as they tag a long.
Shad -ows fall -ing,  Sand -man's call -ing.  There goes The Man With The Ban -jo,
Gai -ly hum -ming, soft -ly strum -ming, on his mer -ry old way.
