THE GALLANT GIRL THAT SMOTE THE DASTARD
TORY, OH!
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!
Chorus.
