Onward, onward

Nigel Hallworth


ONWARD ( sung to a tune that is stongly remiscent of the famous hymn - but is rather different )


Onward onward Christian soldiers

Marching off to war

Regimental mascot, going on before

Hear the padre's stirring sermon

Englishmen know right from wrong

Then the loyal congregation

Raise their voice in song



Onward onward Christian soldiers

Marching off to war

Soon they will be sailing, to a foreign shore

Left right left right, left right

Shining boots of Britain's might

Britons never will be slaves

Britannia rules the waves!
