The blue and gold or red and black

Would they were here now looking back,

The bonnet or the checkered cap

The bicorne or the shakoes snap

Such uniforms would crack the whip

Both here ashore or board a ship !

The men who fought that very day

They won or lost, some ran away,

Which country were they fighting for

It was two hundred years before,

There to become the last of all

As citizens answered the call !
