How Are You Conscripts?

How are you, Conscripts?

The wheel is turning round, boys,
Hurrah, now, for jam!
How are you, Conscripts? hurry up
To fight for Uncle Sam!
Come up! Bob, don’t stand there shaking;
Take your musket, shoulder arms!
Stand in line with Larry Brady;
Who now cares for war’s alarms?

Hark! the drum is rolling,
The Rebs you soon will see,
And pop them off like pigeons;
What glorious fun ’twill be!
Put away that dirty viper:
What a time to pipe your eye!
Hold your head up, courage, Conscripts!
Soldiers never fear to die!

Shoulder arms, now, Conscripts!
Blackguards, what’s your name?
Terence Darby—Blood an’ ouns!
How Paddy jumps for fame!
Frenchmen, Scotchmen, all press forward!
O mien got! here Mynheer comes..
Blow the bugle, split the trumpet,
Shout Hosannas! pelt the drums!
