Do Re Mi Rodgers and Hammerstein, The Sound of Music, Lee Dorsey (#27 in 1962)

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, the first three notes just happen to be "Do Re Mi"
DO, RE, MI, fa, so, la, ti, 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;
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!
DO, RE, MI, fa, so, la, ti, do!
