Lyrics

Well, you've heard about the Indians
With their tommy hawks and spears
And of the UN warriors
The heroes of recent years
Also I might mention the British Grenadiers
Well none of them were in it but the Dublin Fusiliers
You've heard about the Light Brigade
And of the deeds they've done
And of the other regiments
That many vic'tries won
But the pride of all the armies
Dragoons and Carabiniers
Was that noble band of warriors
The Dublin Fusiliers

With your left foot and right about face
This is the way we go
Charging with fixed bayonets
The terror of every foe
A glory to old Ireland
As proud as buccaneers
And a terror to Creation are
The Dublin Fusiliers

Well you've heard about the wars between
The Russians and the Brits
The sar' one day was reading
An ould copy of "Titbits"
And when the General came to him
And threw himself down in tears
"We'd better run back like blazes
Here's the Dublin Fusiliers"
The sar' commenced to tremble
And he bit his underlip
"Begorra boys!" says he
"I think we'd better take the tip
The Devil's come from Dublin
And to judge from what I hears
They're demons of militia men
The Dublin Fusiliers

With your left foot and right about face
This is the way we go
Charging with fixed bayonets
The terror of every foe
A glory to old Ireland
As proud as buccaneers
And a terror to Creation are
The Dublin Fusiliers

Well the Seargent cried: "Get ready lads
Lay down each sword and gun
Take off your shoes and stockings boys
And when I tell yous, run"
They didn't stop but started
And amidst three ringing cheers
Came a shower of bricks and bullets
From the Dublin Fusiliers
The time that Julius Ceasar tried
To land down at Ringsend
The coastguards couldn't stop them
So for the Dublins they did send
And just as they were landing, lads
We heard three ringing cheers:
"Get back to Rome like blazes
Here's the Dublin Fusiliers"

With your left foot and right about face
This is the way we go
Charging with fixed bayonets
The terror of every foe
A glory to old Ireland
As proud as buccaneers
And a terror to Creation are
The Dublin Fusiliers
