Lyrics

1. We'll sing a song, a soldier's song,
With cheering, rousing chorus.
As round our blazing fires we throng,
The starry heavens o'er us.
Impatient for the coming fight,
And as we wait the morning's light,
Here in the silence of the night,
We'll sing a soldier's song.
Chorus: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 aincent sireland
Shall shelter the despot or the slave.
Tonight we man the bear na baoghail
In Erin's cause come woe or weal:
'Mid cannons' roar andrifles' peal,
We'll sing a soldier's song.
2. In valley green, on towering crag,
Our Fathers fought before us,
And conquered 'neath the same old flag
That's proudly floating o'er us.
We're children of a fighting race,
That never yet has known disgrace,
And as we march, the foe to face,
We'll sing a soldier's song.
(Repeat Chorus)
3. Sons of the Gael! Men of the Pale!
The long watched day is breaking;
The serried ranks of Inisfail
Shall set the tyrant quaking.
Our campfires now are burning low:See in the east a silv'ry glow,
Out yonder waits the Saxon foe,
So sing a soldiers song.
(Repeat Chorus)
