“Please folks.  May I have your attention please?  Attention please!  I can deal with this trouble, friends, with a wave of my hand, this very hand!  Please observe me if you will. I’m Professor Harold Hill, and I’m here to organize the River City Boys’ Band!  Now think my friends, how can any pool table ever hope to compete with a gold trombone?  Remember my friends, what a handful of trumpet players did to the famous, fabled walls of Jericho - oh billiard parlour walls come a-tumblin’ down!  Oh a band will do it, my friends, oh yes, I say a boys’ band, do you hear me?  I say, River City’s gotta have a boys’ band, and I mean she needs it today.  Well Professor Harold Hill’s on hand, River City’s gonna have her boys’ band, as sure as the Lord made little green apples - and that band’s gonna be in uniform!”
