THE ZOUAVES' BATTLE-SONG. 45
Onward, Zouaves, for the foe hath defied us ; Onward, Zouaves, we have brave men to guide us; Let the sunlight and moonlight, from bayonets
glancing, Tell the foe the vanguard of the North is advancing. Onward, &c.
Onward, Zouaves, till we break down oppression;
Onward, Zouaves, till we crush out secession ;
We 've shown them our friendship is honest and
true, We '11 show them our wrath can be terrible too. Onward, &c.
Onward, Zouaves, for our bugles are clanging; Onward, Zouaves, the assassins need hanging ; No longer we '11 bear with their rapine and wrong, Their guilt makes them weak while our cause makes us strong. Onward, &c.
Onward, Zouaves,— when the struggle is ended
Homeward we '11 carry the flag we 've defended;
Home, where our dear ones will greet with caress-ings;
Home where our country will greet us with blessings.
