There is a song we all should know,
Bully for you, bully for you,
“Bully for you” is all the go,
Bully for you, for you.
The words are not refined ‘tis true,
Bully for you, bully for you,
Still every one says, “Bully for you,”
Bully for you, for you.
Bully, oh, golly, what bully good rhymes,
Bully for you, bully for you,
Let us all sing it to soften hard times,
Bully for you, bully for you.
There’s little Jeff. Davis, he’s in a stew,
Bully for you, &c.
He scarcely knows now what to do,
Bully for you, &c.
He’s raising armies—makes a show,
Bully for you, &c.
But who to fight no one does know,
Bully for you, &c.

There’s Texas now, which cont us dear,
Bully for you, &c.
From Uncle Sam she wants to clear,
Bully for you, &c.
But Twiggs the Traitor must beware,
Bully for you, &c.
For old Sam Houston still is there,
Bully for you, &c.

Old England likes our Tariff not,
Bully for you, &c.
Because she loses by the shot,
Bully for you, &c.
She sent us goods, we sent them gold,
Bully for you, &c.
But now we’ve stopped that game so bold,
Bully for you, &c.

You all have heard of Mr. Cobb,
Bully for you, &c.
How he has made a “Bully job,”
Bully for you, &c.

Bully for you, &c.
He drained it, and then off he hied,
Bully for you, &c.

The Cotton States now want a name,
Bully for you, &c.
They’re bothered much about the same,
Bully for you, &c.
To their own men they should incline,
Bully for you, &c.
Rhett-ched Confederacy would sound fine,
Bully for you, &c.
