Oh! kind folks listen to my song, it is no idle story,
It's all about a volunteer whos goin to fight for glory;
Now don't you think that I am right, for I am nothin shorter,
And I belong to the Fire Zou-Zous, and don't you think I oughter,
We're goin down to Washington to fight for Abrahams daughter.
Oh! should you ask me who she am, Columbia is her name, sir,
She is the child of Abraham, or Uncle Sam, the same, sir,
Now if I fight, why aint I right, and don't you think I oughter;
The volunteers are a pouring in from every loyal quarter,
And I'm goin long to Washington, to fight for Abrahams daughter.
They say we have no officers, but ah! they are mistaken;
And soon you'll see the Rebels run, with all the fuss theyre makin;
For there is one who just sprung up, he'll show the foe no quarter,
(McClellan is the man I mean,) you know he hadn't oughter,
For he's gone down to Washington, to fight for Abrahams daughter.
We'll have a spree with Johnny Bull, perhaps, some day or other,
And won't he have his fingers full, if not a deal of bother;
For Yankee boys are just the lads upon the land and water,
And won't we have a "bully" fight, and dont you think we oughter,
If he is caught at any time insulting Abraham's daughter.
But let us lay all jokes aside, it is a sorry question;
The man who would these States divide, should hang for his suggestion.
One Country and one Flag, I say, whoe'er the war may slaughter,
So I'm going as a Fire Zou-a, and dont you think I oughter;
I'm going down to Washington, to fight for Abrahams daughter.
