BIG BRASS BAND FROM BRAZIL From the Broadway show "Angel In The Wings" (1947) (Bob Hilliard / Carl Sigman) Jack Smith - 1948 Kay Kyser & His Orch. - 1948 Danny Kaye & The Andrews Sisters - 1948 Edmundo Ros & His Rumba Band - 1948 Art Mooney - 1948 Aroompah-pah casegaru, Aroompah-pah casegaru Aroompah-pah casegaru That's the way they go Three brothers down in Rio Had a noisy family trio Three piccolos that sounded mighty shrill But their poppa called it music So with his dough they planned The big brass band from brazil Then soon they sent to Cuba For some trumpets and a tuba They figured that their relatives had skill Poppa's ears were stuffed with cotton But he still thinks they're grand The big brass band from Brazil Oh they practiced all night long But they've only learned one song So they play that same old phrase Forty seven different ways Aroompah-pah casegaru Aroompah-pah casegaru Aroompah-pah casegaru Give the boys a hand Room-pah-pah, Room-pah-pah Room-pah-pah, Room-pah-pah There's first and second cousins And there's uncle by the dozens They play as long as poppa pays the bill And it's getting more expensive Each time that they expand The big brass band from Brazil With cymbals an maracas They were hot as fire crackers The night they played that concert on the hill And they made it more exciting By crashing through the stand The big brass band from Brazil Oh they practiced all night long But they've only learned one song They don't need their drums at all When the neighbours bang the wall (Orchestral Break) They caused a big sensation As they played across the nation As long as something's different it's a thrill And to keep Brazilian friendship The critics never panned The big brass band from Brazil Oh they practiced all night long But they've only learned one song People say that they'd be through If they practiced something new Aroompah-pah casegaru Aroompah-pah casegaru Aroompah-pah casegaru Give the boys a hand The big brass band from Brazil (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - January 2005)
