The New-York Fire-Zouaves.

Come all, yon loyal citizens, I pray you will draw near;
It is of the gallant Zouaves you will quickly hear.
Away with Col. Ellsworth those brave men, they did go
To save the Stars and Stripes from the Southern Rebels, O.

On the 21st of April, it was glorious for to see
Those noble hearted young men going, their Country for to free,
On board the steamer Baltic, as the tide did gently flow,
To save the Stars and Stripes from the Southern Rebels, O.

Ther’ is a gallant hearted young man, A.M.O.C. is his name,
He left a tender parent in sorrow to remain.
He says: do not controll me, for I surely mean to go
To save the Stars and Stripes from the Southern Rebels, O.

Under their gallant officers each company took their stand
At one moment’s warning they were all at their command,
With wills as fierce as tigers, as they marched to and fro,
To save the Stars and Stripes from the Southern Rebels, O.

We received three stands of colors without a spot or stain:
One from Mrs. Jacob Astor, she is a lady of great fame;
We will fight beneath our colors, no matter where we go,
We will defend the Stars and Stripes from the Southern Rebels, O.

Now to conclude and finish, let each heart send a prayer
To God to save Zouaves that with an eagle eye do stare;
The proud rebel Davis we hope they will overthrow,
And bring here the Palmetto from the Southern Rebels, O.
