THE GALLANT GIRL THAT SMOTE THE DASTARD
Dedicated to Miss Slidell. "Words by Klubs. Music by Ducie Diamonds.
Ho, gallants, brim the beaker bowl,
And click the festal glasses, oh ! The grape shall shed its sapphire soul,
To eulogize the lasses, oh! And when ye pledge the lip and curl
Of loveliness and glory, oh ! Here's a bumper to the gallant girl
That smote the dastard Tory, oh !
Chorus.—A bumper, a thumper,
To loveliness and glory, oh! A bumper to the gallant girl That smote the dastard Tory, oh I
Our boys are fighting East and West,
Our women do not linger, oh! They take their diamonds from the breast,
Their rubies from the finger, oh ! Thej' send their darlings to the war
Of honor and of glory, oh! They've all the spirit of a man,
To smite a dastard Tory, oh!
