Any Other Man No. 2

Come listen to me, one and all,
I’ll sing to you a lay,
And speciate upon the time,
And fashions of the day;
And if you’ll pay attention,
I’ll do the best I can,
To tell you what I think of you,
“Or any other man.”

Go read the page of history,
Of nations great and small,
You’ll find that Hail Columbia’s land,
Can beat them one and all.
And while our flag of freedom
Waves o’er this happy land.
We’ll try to keep the Union safe.
“Or any other man.”

The demagogues now in the South,w
Had better mind their eye.
Nor try by any shabby tricks,
To come it on the sly;
For all our boys will rally round,
Our good old Uncle Sam,
To fight, and bleed, or die for him,
And nary “other man.”

Our constitution we’ll defend,
Our country, and its laws,
All rebel traitors we will drive
Forever from our shores,
If Johnny Bull should interfere.
(They say it is his plan.)
We’ll whollop him, Jeff. Davis too,
“Or any other man.”

Our country calls on every one,
No matter where his birth,
So our Irish boys will show the south,
Their courage, skill, and worth:
And when it comes to fighting,
The foremost of the van,
Will be our gallant Sixty-Ninth,
“Or any other man.”
