Soldiers are we whose lives are pledged to ireland
Some have come from a land beyond the wave
Sworn to be free no more our ancient sire land
Will shelter the despot or the slave
Tonight we man the gap of danger
All in Erin’s cause come woe or weal
‘Mid rifl es screaming peal
We’ll chant a soldier’s song
