The British Grenadiers

Lyrics

  • Some talk of Alexander, and some of Hercules
  • Of Hector and Lysander, and such great names as these.
  • But of all the world's great heroes, there's none that can compare.
  • With a tow, row, row, row, row, row, to the British Grenadiers.
  • Those heroes of antiquity ne'er saw a cannon ball,
  • Or knew the force of powder to slay their foes withal.
  • But our brave boys do know it, and banish all their fears,
  • With a tow, row, row, row, row, row, for the British Grenadiers.
  • Whene'er we are commanded to storm the palisades,
  • Our leaders march with fusees, and we with hand grenades.
  • We throw them from the glacis, about the enemies' ears.
  • Sing tow, row, row, row, row, row, the British Grenadiers.
  • And when the siege is over, we to the town repair.
  • The townsmen cry, "Hurrah, boys, here comes a Grenadier!
  • Here come the Grenadiers, my boys, who know no doubts or fears!
  • Then sing tow, row, row, row, row, row, the British Grenadiers.
  • Then let us fill a bumper, and drink a health of those
  • Who carry caps and pouches, and wear the loupèd clothes.
  • May they and their commanders live happy all their years.
  • With a tow, row, row, row, row, row, for the British Grenadiers.
