DO RE MI

Posted on: April 25, 2008

From The Sound of Music

Romanian translation: Cântecul gamei

Let’s start at the very beginning
A very good place to start
When you read you begin with A-B-C
When you sing you begin with do-re-mi

Do-re-mi, do-re-mi
The first three notes just happen to be
Do-re-mi, do-re-mi

Maria:
Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti
spoken Let’s see if I can make it easy

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)

Maria and Children:
(Repeat above verse twice)

Maria:
Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-do
So-do!

Maria:(spoken)
Now children, do-re-mi-fa-so and so on
are only the tools we use to build a song.
Once you have these notes in your heads,
you can sing a million different tunes by mixing them up.
Like this.

So Do La Fa Mi Do Re
spoken Can you do that?
Children:
So Do La Fa Mi Do Re
Maria:
So Do La Ti Do Re Do
Children:
So Do La Ti Do Re Do
Maria:
spoken Now, put it all together.

Maria and Children:
So Do La Fa Mi Do Re, So Do La Ti Do Re Do
Maria:
spoken Good!
Brigitta:
spoken But it doesn’t mean anything.
Maria:
spoken So we put in words. One word for every note. Like this.

When you know the notes to sing
You can sing most anything
spoken Together!

Maria and Children:
When you know the notes to sing
You can sing most anything

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

Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do
Do Ti La So Fa Mi Re

Children:
Do Mi Mi
Mi So So
Re Fa Fa
La Ti Ti
(Repeat above verse 4x as Maria sings)

Maria:
When you know the notes to sing
You can sing most anything

Maria and Children:
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

Maria:
Children:

Do . . . So Do
Re . . . La Fa
Mi . . . Mi Do
Fa . . . Re
So . . . So Do
La . . . La Fa
Ti . . . La So Fa Mi Re
Ti Do – oh – oh Ti Do — So Do
