[Verse 1]
ALL: A troupe of strolling players are we,
DEAN: Not stars like L.B. Mayer's are we,
ALL: But just a simple band
ALL: Who roams about the land
FRANK: Dispensing fol-de-rol frivolity.

[Verse 2]
ALL: Mere folk who give distraction are we,
SAMMY: No Theater Guild attractions are we,
FRANK: Oh Shut up Sam,
ALL: But just a crazy group
FRANK: That never ceases to troop
ALL: Around the map of little Italy.
SAMMY: Well here we go back to the home Country again,

[Chorus 1]
ALL: We open in Venice,
ALL: We next play Verona,
ALL: Then on to Cremona.
FRANK: Lotsa laughs in Cremona.
ALL: Our next jump in Parma,
FRANK: That dopy, mope Menace,
ALL: Then Mantua, then Padua,
FRANK: Then we open again,
ALL: Where?!

[Chorus 2]
ALL: We open in Venice,
ALL: We next play Verona,
ALL: Then on to Cremona.
DEAN: Lotsa bars in Cremona.
ALL: Our next jump in Parma,
DEAN: That fearless, cheerless Menace,
ALL: Then Mantua, then Padua,
DEAN: Then we open again,
ALL: where?!

[Chorus 3]
ALL: We open in Venice,
ALL: We next play Verona,
ALL: Then on to Cremona.
SAMMY: Lotsa money in Cremona.
ALL: Our next jump in Parma,
SAMMY: That dingy, stingy Menace,
ALL: Then Mantua, then Padua,
SAMMY: Then we open again,
ALL: where?!

[Chorus 4]
ALL: We open in Venice,
ALL: We next play Verona,
ALL: Then on to Cremona.
FRANK: Lotsa quail in Cremona.
ALL: Our next jump in Parma,
FRANK: That heartless, artless menace,
ALL: Then Mantua, then Padua,
FRANK: Then we open again,
ALL: where?!

[Bridge]
FRANK: Oh, let me see now, I got a map, let's pick out someplace.
SAMMY: Well just don't go too far down the line there,
DEAN: oh let's take the first canyon out of here.
FRANK: As a matter fact if we order we can beat the tab,
FRANK: ‘Cause the sheriff out there waiting for us.
FRANK: Goodbye boys,
DEAN: gida, gida, gida.
