Pied Piper Of Hamelin

(Desmond Carter / Noel Gay)

Ray Noble & his New Mayfair Dance Orchestra


Hamelin towns in Brunswick
Brunswick is in Germany
Long ago, It's seemed as though
The town was getting vermony
Hamelin called a piper
To charm the rats away
He heard the tale that people told
Said, Oh Boy, I'll knock them cold
And he began to play

The rats came 'round
The cats came 'round
From every belfry bats came 'round
Attracted by the tune the piper played

From every hole he drew them out
They heard the stuff, he blew them out
They trembled at the noises that he made

While he shot hot breaks at Hamelin
To the riverside they strayed
They wrapped their tails around themselves
And all jumped in and drowned themselves
To dodge the tune the piper played

The rats came 'round
The cats came 'round
From every belfry bats came 'round
Attracted by the tune the piper played

From every hole he drew them out
They heard the stuff, he blew them out
They trembled at the noises that he made

They wrapped their tails around themselves
And all jumped in and drowned themselves
To dodge the tune the piper played
