Copyright, 1898. by Alice Davis Thornton.

There floats a cry from Cuba, across o'er Tampa's bay,
Come over brother soldiers, and help us in the fray;
Back over Tampa's waters we shout the megaphone:
We're coming, strongly coming, with valor, grit and gun.

Await the great Invasion, coming mighty strong,
Await the great Invasion, for it comes to right the wrong.
Hurrah! for our soldier boys, they go to win the day,
And show them that to tackle Uncle Sam don't pay.

The soil that once was harrowed with Maceo's lifeless form,
Shall wave its "Cuba Libre," unfurled by tyrants wrong.
We'll rout the vile assassins who sank our ship, the "Maine,"
For from Havana's harbor cry out the dread refrain:-Chorus.

Shoot on, ye Morro Castles, undauntedly we stand,
Nor shrink the whizzing missile turned loose by clumsy hands.
Like Dewey, we defy their aim and sink the hostile foe,
And Blanco and Cervera we'll "do" forevermore.-Chorus.

Then float flag of liberty o'er Cuba's tropic soil,
Your Uncle Sam looks proudly on the boasted, vaunted spoil.
He has practiced what he preached, and won in freedom's name.
And the Phoenix hallelujahs forever will proclaim: - Chorus
