Cash for the merchandise, cash for the button hooks
Cash for the cotton goods, cash for the hard goods
Cash for the fancy goods
Cash for the noggins and the piggins and the frikins
Cash for the hogshead, cask and demijohn.
Cash for the crackers and the pickles and the flypaper.
Look whatayatalk, whatayatalk, whatayatalk, whatayatalk, whatayatalk?
Ya can talk, ya can talk, ya can bicker, ya can talk,
ya can bicker, bicker, bicker, ya can talk, ya can talk,
ya can talk, talk, talk, talk, bicker, bicker, bicker,
ya can talk all ya want but is different than it was.
No it ain't, no it ain't, but you gotta know the territory
Shh shh shh shh shh shh shh
Why it's the Model T Ford made the trouble,
made the people wanna go, wanna get, wanna get,
wanna get up and go seven, eight, nine, ten, twelve,
fourteen, twenty-two, twenty-three miles to the county seat
Yes sir, yes sir
Who's gonna patronize a little bitty two by four kinda store anymore?
Whaddaya talk, whaddaya talk,
Where do you get it?
Gone with the hogshead cask and demijohn,
gone with the sugar barrel pickle barrel, milk pan,
gone with the tub and the pail and the tierce
Ever meet a fellow by the name of Hill?
All But Charlie & 2nd Salesman
Just a minute, just a minute, just a minute
Never heard of any salesman Hill
Now he doesn't know the territory
Doesn't know the territory?!?
What's the fellow's line?
Never worries 'bout his line
Never worries 'bout his line?!?
Or a doggone thing, He's just a bang beat, bell ringing,
Big haul, great go, neck-or-nothing, rip roarin',
every time a bull's eye salesman,
That's Professor Harold Hill, Harold Hill
What's the fellow's line?
What's his line?
He's a fake, and he doesn't know the territory!
Look, whaddaya talk, whaddaya talk, whaddaya talk, whaddaya talk?
He's a music man
He's a what?
He's a what?
He's a music man and he sells clarinets
to the kids in the town with the big trombones
and the rat-a-tat drums, big brass bass, big brass bass,
and the piccolo, the piccolo with uniforms, too
with a shiny gold braid on the coat and a big red stripe runnin'...
Well, I don't know much about bands but I do know
you can't make a living selling big trombones, no sir.
Mandolin picks, perhaps and here and there a Jew's harp...
No, the fellow sells bands, Boys' bands.
I don't know how he does it but he lives like a king
and he dallies and he gathers and he plucks and he shines,
and when the man dances certainly, boys, what else?
The piper pays him! Yes sir, yes sir, yes sir, yes sir,
when the man dances, certainly, boys, what else?
The piper pays him! Yessssir, Yessssir
But he doesn't know the territory!
