A NEW SONG.
So Lincoln came down to Savannah, The French and we all sung hosanna, We soon will take them every man-a. Doodle doodle do, pa, pa, pa, pa, pa.
Then Maitland came just in the nick, Or we'd have shown them such a trick, As would have made them very sick.
Doodle doodle do, pa, pa, pa, pa, pa.
But soon we found ourselves mistaken, And were glad to save our bacon, Rather than be killed or taken.
Doodle doodle do, pa, pa, pa, pa, pa.
We thought to take the enemy, But we, alas! were forced to fly, We may do better by and by.
Doodle doodle do, pa, pa, pa, pa, pa.
The French, it's true, behav'd quite civil, Yet we wish'd them to the devil, And hope that good may spring from evil. Doodle doodle do, pa, pa, pa, pa, pa.
