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
The first three notes just happen to be
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)
That will bring us back to Do
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.
So Do La Fa Mi Do Re
Can you do that?
So Do La Ti Do Re Do
Now, put it all together.
So Do La Fa Mi Do Re, So Do La Ti Do Re Do
But it doesn't mean anything.
So we put in words. One word for every note. Like this.
When you know the notes to sing
You can sing most anything
Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do
Do Ti La So Fa Mi Re
Do Mi Mi
Mi So So
Re Fa Fa
La Ti Ti
