PADDY ON SAMBO AS A SOLDIER. 219
For that wondrous battle-shout, Far above the tempest's rout! 'T is the symbol of the time, When on Freedom's mount sublime, Our Old Union shall have place With an everlasting base, Proudly scorning fraud and foe, While through every cycle's flow Nations bless our " Fi<rhtin<x Joe " — For his fight above the clouds !
—♦— PADDY ON SAMBO AS A SOLDIER.
BY PRIVATE MILES O'REILLY.
Air — " The Low-Backed Car."
SOME tell us 't is a burning shame
To make the naygurs fight; An' that the thrade of bem' kilt
Belongs but to the white; But as for me, upon my sowl!
So liberal are we here, I '11 let Sambo be murdered in place of myself
On every day in the year!
