Marching Through Deutschland

(Tune “Marching Through Georgia”)

Bring the good old bugle boys we’ll sing another song,
Sing it with a spirit that will start the world along,
Sing it as we’re going to sing two million voices strong,
When we go marching through Deutschland.

– – Chorus – – –

Hurrah! Hurrah; we’ll wreck the Kaiser’s throne,
Hurrah! Hurrah! the crowned heads they will moan,
for they’ll see some charging done like they have never known
When we go marching through Deutschland.

Our navy has the men and boats to sink their submarines,
We’ll shoot off all their periscopes we’ll use our men and means,
We’ll drive the kaiser from his throne and feed him pork and beans
When we go marching through Deutschland.

Our army wears the olive drab you’ll find they are no joke,
They’ll shoot the Germans full of holes and blow them up in smoke,
And when the Kaiser sees us come I think that he will croak
When we go marching through Deutschland.

The volunteers will do their part to win this world-wide war
For they will be there at the front to do their share and more,
We’ll drive the Germans out of France and charge them with a roar,
When we go marching through Deutschland.

Here at Camp Cody we’ve a bunch to man the Vickers gun,
Who when we reach the German trench think it will be great fun,
To drive the Kaiser’s minions out and shoot them as they run,
When we go marching through Deutschland.

Now Kaiser Bill if you don’t think that we mean what we say,
Just keep on with your dirty work until we reach the fray,
For when you find it is too late you will bemoan the day,
When we go marching through Deutschland.
