MIDI File

Fanny: The man behind the gun!
Stand ever ready to defend him!
When the call to battle's sounding,
Anxious words he's not propounding,
But it's...
All: "Up and at 'em, boys."
Fanny: 'Tis not the hour for meditation,
Mincing words or explanation, but it's...
All: Up and at 'em, boys, charge!
Fanny: Ah, see his gallant charge,
May luck and victory attend him!
Watch him rallying and fighting,
Now the foe the dust is biting,
For it's...
All: "Up and at 'em, boys."
Fanny: The battle rages fast and faster,
To the foeman's great disaster,
For it's...
All: "Up and at 'em, boys."
The battle rages fast and faster,
To the foeman's great disaster,
For it's "Up and at 'em, boys!"
Oh, crown him, hero of our land!
He'll fight till the battle's won.
Oh, brave heart of a valiant band,
The man behind the gun!
Fanny: Oh,
All: Oh, crown him, hero of our land!
He'll fight till the battle's won.
Oh, brave heart of a valiant band,
The man behind the gun,
behind the gun, behind the gun!
Oh, brave heart of a valiant band,
The man behind, the man behind the gun!
