WHAT YANKEE LADS WILL DO.
Copyright. 1898, by Dixie Music Co.
Words by Edward F Calvin. Music by Thus. M. Kane.

Ring out the martial summons throughout our land to-day:
A nation's voice hath spoken, the blended blue and gray;
Salute our starry banner, 'twas born of the heaven's blue;
We'll teach the cruel traitors what Yankee lads will do!
Well teach the cruel traitors what Yankee lads will do!

Chorus.
We goto fight the foemen, God speed the Gray and Blue;
our flag's unfurl'd, we'll show the world what Yankee lads will do!
We go to fight the foemen, God speed the Gray and Blue;
Our flags unfurled, we'll show the world what Yankee lads will do!

The day has come for action, our wrath is Just and deep:
We'll right the wrong we suffered, where martyr'd heroes sleep;
They died at Freedom's altar, unchalleng'd, brave and true:
We'll show the Maine's destroyers what Yankee lads will do!
We'll show the Maine's destroyers what Yankee lads will do!- Cho.

We're sworn to sacred duty, our tars will sweep the sea;
The Maine will be remember'd, God frowns on treachery;
The long roll sounds now, freemen, your glorious deeds renew;
No flag of truce! show traitors what Yankee lads will do!
No flag of truce! show traitors what Yankee lads will do!- Cho.
