ROLL UP!

(Tune, ‘ The British Grenadiers.’) “Rill up the map of Europe!” The German Kaiser cri:d, “For I’m he new Napoleon, An’ England’s 'ands are tied.” But another sort o’ rollin’ up Is cornin’ into play — “Roll up! Roll up !" sez Kitchener, An’ we’re rollin’ up all day. ’E thought, did Kaiser William, That England would stand by Wile ’e an’ ’is five million Were crushiu’ ’er ally; “For they ’aven't got the men,” ’e said, “To fight ocrost the seas.” “Roll up! Roll upl” sez Kitchener, “New Army, forward, please!” Yes, ’e wants a Second Army—’E’s goin’ to get it, too; For we know the man that calls us, An’ we trust him thro’ and thro’. We’re steppin’ up from everywhere, To the tune of the old tow-row, “Rod up! Roll up!” sez Kitchener, “ It’s King and Country now.” An’ while we do our part ’ere, We'll think with love an’ pride Of our comrades now a-rallyiu’ Acrost the oceans wide. For East an’ West an’ furthest South They hear K.’s call resound—- “ Roll up! Roll up for England!” An’ they’re rollin’ up all round! —W. M. L.. Hutchinson, in the ‘Pall Mali Gazette.’
