18 SONGS OF THE SOLBIEHS AND SAILORS.
We're going to take a little chance,'
We're going to France!
We're going to try a little run,
To get our duty done, I To have a little fun.
We mean to clear it up, and cheer it up, and then come home.
On our way across the ocean, if we chance on sub*
marines, We'll take the opportunity to fill 'em up with beans* Or if we see a flier, we will catch it on the fly By putting salt upon its tail, as it goes flying by. So we must go away, We're off for France to-day.
We're off for France to take a chance for the U. S. A* We're going to take a little chance, We're going to France! We're going to try a little run, To get our duty done, To have a little fun. We mean to clear it up, an' cheer it up, and then
come home.

12. JOAN OF ARC.
Joan of Arc, Joan of Arc,
Do your eyes, from the skies, see the foe?
Don't you see the drooping Fleur-de-lis? , Can't you hear the tears of Normandy? Joan of Arc, Joan of Arc, Let your spirit guide us through,
Come lead your France to victory, Joan of Arc, they are calling you.
