Do-Re-Mi Complete Production Number Lyrics (Script) with instructions

Maria sings this song with the seven Von Trapp children. Choose a role before starting or ad lib through the number.


[Maria] Let's start at the very beginning
A very good place to start
When you read you begin with [Gretl, spoken] A-B-C
[Maria] When you sing you begin with do-re-mi


[Children] Do-re-mi, [Maria] do-re-mi
The first three notes just happen to be
[Maria] Do-re-mi, [Children]do-re-mi
[Maria]
Do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-ti...

[spoken]
Oh, let's see if I can make it easier

[cascading intro]

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] [Children shouting]

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
Ti! [Children singing]

a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to ...
... Do! ... 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
Sol, a needle pulling thread Sew, a needle pulling thread
La, a note to follow Sol La, a note to follow Sew
Ti, a drink with jam and bread Tea, a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to Do! That will bring us back to Doe!
[2, 3, 4, rest][2, 3, 4, rest]
[Fast]Do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-ti-do [Fast]Do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-ti-do
Sol-do! Sol-do!

[Maria (spoken)]
Now children, do-re-mi-fa-sol 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.

[sung] Sol Do La Fa Mi Do Re
[spoken] Can you do that?
[Children echo] So Do La Fa Mi Do Re
[Maria] Sol Do La Ti Do Re Do
[Children echo] So Do La Ti Do Re Do
[Maria (spoken)] Now, put it all together.
[Maria and Children] Sol Do La Fa Mi Do Re, Sol 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.

[Maria]
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.

[Maria] Doe [held], [Children] a deer, a female deer
[Maria] Ray [held], [Children] a drop of golden sun

[All] Tea, a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to Do!
