Peace or War?

Soldiers, sailors, Bngland's glory— Army red aud navy blue; Sons of sires renown'd in story, Lion-heartfd, firm, and true; Touch us gently we are mild. Harmless as a little child; Touch us fairly we’ll be fair, Touch us roughly if you dare, Bouse the lion, and his roar Shall bo heard from shore to shore. Men united, firm and true, Show what patriot hearts can do. Peaceful pleasures we delight in, Friend we’d rather meet than foe; But if men persist in fighting, We can give them blow for blow. Hearts are here that never quail, Hands we have that do not fail; Courage rises always grand, For sweethearts, wives, aud native land. For home and freedom, and man’s right, Soldiers, sailors bravely fight Round the flag while we have breath We will fight—aye, to the death.
