    For there isn't a job on the top o' the earth the beggar don't know, nor do— You can leave 'im at night on a bald man's 'ead, to paddle 'is own canoe— 'E's a sort of a bloomin' cosmopolouse—soldier an' sailor too. So 'ere's to you, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, at your 'ome in the Soudan; You're a pore benighted 'eathen but a first-class fightin' man; An' 'ere's to you, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, with your 'ayrick 'ead of 'air— You big black boundin' beggar—for you broke a British square! The monkey can say what our road was— the wild-goat 'e knows where we passed. With 'is black coat-tails a-bobbin' to Ta-ra-ra Boom-der-ay!

    The Malabar's in 'arbour with the Jumner at 'er tail, An' the time-expired's waitin' of 'is orders for to sail. Sick 'im, puppy! I'll take my oath before them both that I will sure abstain, But as soon as I'm in with a mate and gin, I know I'll do it again! Follow me—follow me 'ome!

    That Day It got beyond all orders an' it got beyond all 'ope; It got to shammin' wounded an' retirin' from the 'alt. Cholera Camp We've got the cholerer in camp—it's worse than forty fights; We're dyin' in the wilderness the same as Isrulites; It's before us, an' be'ind us, an' we cannot get away, An' the doctor's just reported we've ten more to-day! Go, go, go like a soldier, Go, go, go like a soldier, Go, go, go like a soldier, So-oldier of the Queen! Charles Carrington produced the first comprehensive volume of the Ballads inmainly drawn from these three collections but including five additional pieces not previously collected under the title.

Escort to the kerridge, Wish 'im luck, the brute! If your officer's dead and the sergeants look white, Remember it's ruin to run from a fight: So take open order, lie down, and sit tight, And wait for supports like a soldier.

Black Death and his quickness, the depth and Ballads and barrack-room ballads book thickness, Of sorrow and sickness I've known on my way, But I'm old and I'm nervis, I'm cast from the Service, And all I deserve is a shillin' a day.

Now I aren't no 'and with the ladies, For, takin' 'em all along, You never can say till you've tried 'em, An' then you are like to be wrong.

The idiots in question are the poor infantry soldiers who get the sharp end of the terrible decisions and criminal indifference of their generals and officers. True love! But it makes you think better o' you an' your friends, an' the work you may 'ave to do, When you think o' the sinkin' Victorier's Jollies—soldier an' sailor too!

Beer, beer, beer for the soldier We was 'idin' under bedsteads more than 'arf a march away; We was lyin' up like rabbits all about the countryside; An' the major cursed 'is Maker 'cause 'e lived to see that day, An' the colonel broke 'is sword acrost, an' cried.

Artillery moves by the leave o' the ground, But we are the men that do something all round, For we are, etc. You 'oly beggars, Cough be'ind your 'and!

Barrack Room Ballads by Rudyard Kipling

Oh, then it's open order, an' we lights our pipes an' sings, An' we Ballads and barrack-room ballads book about our rations an' a lot of other things, An' we thinks o' friends in England, an' we wonders what they're at, An' 'ow they would admire for to hear us sling the bat.

O the oont, O the oont, O the floppin', droppin' oont! There was a row in Silver Street—it isn't over yet, For half of us are under guard wid Ballads and barrack-room ballads book to get; 'Tis all a merricle to me as in the Clink I lie: There was a row in Silver Street—begod, I wonder why!

O the oont, O the oont, O the hairy scary oont! We make 'em their bridges, their wells, an' their huts, An' the telegraph-wire the enemy cuts, An' it's blamed on, etc.

Charles Carrington produced the first comprehensive volume of the Ballads inmainly drawn from these three collections but including five additional pieces not previously collected under the title. Keep your side-arms quiet, Dressin' by the Band. We blast out the rock an' we shovel the mud, We make 'em good roads an'—they roll down the khud, Reporting, etc.

Oh, keep your touch; we're goin' round a corner. But the beggars under cover 'ad the impidence to stand, An' we couldn't keep 'em waitin' very long. If the home we never write to, and the oaths we never keep, And all we know most distant and most dear, Across the snoring barrack-room return to break our sleep, Can you blame us if we soak ourselves in beer?Buy Barrack Room Ballads by Rudyard Kipling online at Alibris.
