Bummers, COME AND MEET US.

McClellan is our leader now, we’ve had our last retreat;
McClellan is our leader now, we’ve had our last retreat;
McClellan is our leader now, we’ve had our last retreat;
We’ll now go marching on.

Thomas turned a SOMERSET, and gave the Rebels rats;
Thomas turned a SOMERSET, and gave the Rebels rats;
Thomas turned a SOMERSET, and gave the Rebels rats;
And sent them rolling home.

How are you, Johnny Bull, old boy? How are you, Johnny Bull?
How are you, Johnny Bull, old boy? How are you, Johnny Bull?
If you want to fight, old Roast Beef, you will get your belly full,
And then go rolling home.

We’ll have a farm in Dixie, boys, and put some niggers on it;
We’ll have a farm in Dixie, boys, and put some niggers on it;
We’ll have a farm in Dixie, boys, and put some niggers on it;
And, then, we’ll simmer down.

Oh, boys, we’ll sip our cobbler’s then, and cloud our Meerschaum pipes ;
Oh, boys, we’ll sip our cobbler’s then, and cloud our Meerschaum pipes ;
Oh, boys, we’ll sip our cobbler’s then, and cloud our Meerschaum pipes ;
Way down in Dixie’s Land.

There lies the whiskey-bottle empty on the shelf;
There lies the whiskey-bottle empty on the shelf;
There lies the whiskey-bottle empty on the shelf;
But there’s more in the Demi-John.

The girls we left behind us, boys, our sweet-hearts at the North;
The girls we left behind us, boys, our sweet-hearts at the North;
The girls we left behind us, boys, our sweet-hearts at the North;
Smile on us as we march.
