Lyrics

Well a-when the saints go marching in
When the saints go marching in
Mmm I want to be
I'm gonna be in that number
Ooh, when the saints go marching in

Oh when the sun, yeah, begins to shine
When that old sun above begins to shine,
I tell you something: I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be in that number
When the sun begins to shine

Yeah when my lord, mmm, he calls me there
Ah when my lord calls, yeah ge calls me there
I'll tell you something that I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be in that number
Oh when my old lord calls me there

Yeah, when the saints go marching in
When the saints go marching, marching in
I tell you something I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be in that number
Yeah, when the saints go marching in

Well when the sun, yeah, begins to shine.
Whoo, when that sun begins to shine
I tell you something I'm gonna be
I'm a-gonna be in that number, whoo
When that old sun, boy, begins to shine

I say one time
Ah-ha, mmm, ah-ha yeah
Oh, I like it that way baby
Mmm, yeah, ooh
When the saints go marching in

Yeah when the saints go marching in
Yeah when the saints go marching in
I tell you something, that I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be in that number,
Yeah when the saints go marching in

When my lord, he calls me there
Yeah when my lord, he calls me there
I'll tell you something that I'm gonna be
Gonna be, I'm a-gonna be in that number
Yeah, when the saints go marching in
