REMEMBER THE MAINE.
Copyright, 1896, by Frank A. Bush.
Words and Music by Frank A. Bush.

Down in Havana Harbor our good ship Maine was lying:
Beneath the decks all were at rest, wakeful ones for home were sighing.
Sent on a peaceful mission, no one suspected harm,
For each one trusted the "Stars and Stripes" as a safeguard from all
But hark! from below comes a loud, sudden pealing, [alarm.
And then an explosion that lights up the sky;
Then when o'er the bay again silence comes stealing,
Two hundred brave lads disappear without a cry.

Refrain.
We'll never forget the sad events of that night.
Our lads were killed, with no chance to fight;
The foul deed was done by treach'rous Spain.
That's why America fought and avenged the Maine.

Such a crime was committed never before in hist'ry;
A loud report, down went the ship, all was enshrouded in myst'ry.
Treachery ne'er existed equal to this foul deed,
When our brave lads were suddenly killed, just to satisfy Spanish greed.
But sure as the sun rises up in the morning.
For ev'ry life lost we will have many more;
For when Spanish Dons start to kill without warning,
We'll drive ev'ry Spaniard away far from our shore.

Refrain.
We'll never forget the sad events of that night,
Our boys were killed, with no chance to fight;
The foul deed was done by treach'rous Spain,
That's why our soldier boys cried, "Remember the Maine!"
