166                        GENERAL SULLIVAN'S SONG.
We, Americans, so brave, o'er the land or the waves, All invaders defy, we'll repulse them or die, We scorn to live as slaves.
Recall the days, wherein our fathers bravely fought, And crown'd with praise, they patriot glory sought, Bid their high deeds inspire, Bid Magna Charta fire, Greatly they labor'd for our good All sorts of tyranny withstood, All these we despise, on our courage rely, For what American so base would his country disgrace And from his colors fly.
No party spite, no more our measures will oppose, For all unite against our insulting foes, All then in chorus sing, And let your voices ring, Fill unto Sullivan the flowing bowl, Hand it to each gallant soul, Raise patriot flame, his glory proclaim Who his sword boldly draws in his country's cause, And wins an endless name.
