32 BLACK AND WHITE BUDGET Jan. 27,1900 SONG OF THE BAYONET BY WALTER RAGGE (Musical Rights Reserved) ---------->—•©«*—<----------THOUGH your bullets hit a sixpence at eight hundred, Though your shrapnel sweep a hill four miles away, Though your Maxims send some sixty shots a minute, It’s the Bayonet that finishes the fray. Though your ammunition maybe all expended, Though your foes be inclosing from front and rear, Fix bayonets and charge with Scottish slogan, With Irish yell and ringing British cheer! C h o r us. A sit was at Inkerman, so it is to-day Steel it is that proves the man, steel that wins the day. Charge, boys, charge !and drive the foe before us, Seize their guns and break their ranks and sweep them down the hill. Cheer, boys, cheer! and shout it out in chorus, That the good old British Bradawl is the master still. It seems our guns are worse than other people’s, It seems that someone’s certainly to blame But there isn’t any need to be despondent, We’ll beat those other people just the same. Though the latest guns and finest ammunition Have been going to our foemen by the ton, With our bayonets we’ll take these fine inventions, And use them on their owners as they run. C h o r us. A sit was at Inkerman, so it is to-day Steel it is that proves the man, steel that wins the day. Charge, boys, charge !and drive the foe before us, Seize their guns and break their ranks and sweep them clown the hill. Cheer, boys, cheer! and shout it out in chorus, That the good old British Bradawl is the master still. It was British steel, with British arms to back it, That struck the Frenchman down at Waterloo It drove the Sepoy back in Fifty-seven, And still it brings us glories ever new. In many a bloody battle have we tried it, And our trust is in the weapon that we know. W e proved it on the Russians in the trenches, W e proved it on the Boers at Glencoe! Chorus .As it was at Inkerman, so it is to-day Steel it is that proves the man, steel that wins the day Charge, boys, charge! and drive the foe before us, Seize their guns and break their ranks and sweep them down the hill. Cheer, boys, cheer! and shout it out in chorus, That the good old British Bradawl is the master still.
