turn music on
(Traditional verse)
Oh, we're the Boys from JM Band you hear so much about,
The people stop and stare at us whenever we go out.
Oh, we're noted for our playing and the other things we do,
Everybody likes us and we know you'll like us, too.
Oh, as we go marching, and the Band begins to P-L-A-Y,
You can hear them shouting..."The Boys from JM Band are on their way!"

    By the light of the sun, by the light of the sun,
    By the light, by the light, by the light of the sun.
    If you want to have a good time, just join the JM Band,
    By the light, by the light of the sun.

(Ray Jenkins' verse 2008)
Oh, we're the Boys from JM Band we're older now, it's true,
We've practiced hard with high regard the songs we play for you.
Oh, our fingers now are stiffened, our wind is nearly done,
We still can bring back memories and have a lot of fun!
Oh, as we go playing, and you hear a fond re-fra-a-a-ain,
All our friends are shouting..."The Boys from JM Band are back again!"

    By the light of the sun, by the light of the sun,
    By the light, by the light, by the light of the sun.
    If you want to have a good time, come join our Old Time Band,
    By the light, by the light of the sun.
