    Some talk of Alexander, and some of Hercules / The British Grenadiers ca. 18th Century

    The British Grenadiers

    Some talk of Alexander,
    And some of Hercules
    Of Hector and Lysander,
    And such great names as these.
    But of all the world's great heroes,
    There's none that can compare
    With a tow, row, row, row, row, row,
    To the British Grenadier.

    2. Those heroes of antiquity
    Ne'er saw a cannon ball
    Or knew the force of powder
    To slay their foes withall.
    But our brave boys do know it,
    And banish all their fears,
    Sing tow, row, row, row, row, row,
    For the British Grenadier.

    3. Whene'er we are commanded
    To storm the palisades
    Our leaders march with fusees,
    And we with hand grenades.
    We throw them from the glacis,
    About the enemies' ears.
    Sing tow, row, row, row, row, row,
    The British Grenadiers.

    4. And when the siege is over,
    We to the town repair
    The townsmen cry, "Hurra, boys,
    Here comes a Grenadier!"
    Here come the Grenadiers, my boys,
    Who know no doubts or fears!
    Then sing tow, row, row, row, row, row,
    The British Grenadiers.

    5. Then let us fill a bumper,
    And drink a health to those
    Who carry caps and pouches,
    And wear the louped clothes.
    May they and their commanders
    Live happy all their years
    With a tow, row, row, row, row, row,
    For the British Grenadiers.
