The music is Schubertâ€™s "March Militaire." The text is wonderfully witty. The result is an unforgettable novelty number for mixed choirs. Each section of the choir brags about being "the very best in town" or having "the finest sound" in the chromatic B section, before recapitulating the strong "we are the choir" hook. Funny (to hear) ... and fun (to sing)! Featured on the "Hooray for Hollywood!" movement DVD #28868.
