32 SONGS OF THE SOLDIERS AND SAILORS.
Come and get your quinine, come and get your pills. Oh! come and get your quinine, come and get your pills.
Come all who are able and go to the stable, And water your horses and give 'em some corn;
For if you don't do it, the Col'nel will know it, And then you will rue it, sure as you're bora,
Fading light Dims the sight,
And a star gems the sky, Gleaming bright,
From afar drawing nigh, Falls the night.
Dear one, rest! In the west
Sable night Lulls the day on her breast,
Sweet, goodnight! Now away To thy rest.
• Love, sweet dreams! Lo, the beams
Of the light Fairy moon kiss the streams,
Love, good night! Ah, so soon! Peaceful dreams!
