84                      THE SEVENTH.
THE SEVENTH.*
BY FITZJAMES O'BRIEN.
Air — " Gilla Machree."
I.
OCH ! we 're the boys
That hearts desthroys Wid making love and fighting ;
We take a fort,
The girls we court, But most the last delight in.
To fire a gun,
Or raise some fun, To us is no endeavor;
So let us hear
One hearty cheer — The Seventh's lads forever! Chorus —For we 're the boys
That hearts desthroys, Wid making love and fighting;
We take a fort, The girls we court,
But most the last delight in.
* New York State Militia, Colonel Lefferts.
