BY ELIZABETH T. PORTER BEACH.
Tune — " Pop goes the Weasel."
UP ! " brave boys ! to " double-quick time ! " Foes invade our border ! Up ! to music's " double-quick time !"
To arms ! to arms ! in order ! Ready ! boys, in double-quick time !
Each man in his station ; — On ! to save your cherished clime! Viva our nation !
Forward ! march! to " double-quick time !"
Forward, all, in order ! Let our " cry " in musical rhyme,
King o'er the border ! Quickly it rang throughout our land,
Echoes loud resounding; Quickly raised a mighty band !
Echo our war-cry, each true son, " Freedom, and our Nation ! 12
