Marching Song

Written by: Robert Louis Stevenson | Biography
 | Quotes (139) |
 Bring the comb and play upon it! 
Marching, here we come! 
Willie cocks his highland bonnet, 
Johnnie beats the drum. 

Mary Jane commands the party, 
Peter leads the rear; 
Feet in time, alert and hearty, 
Each a Grenadier! 

All in the most martial manner 
Marching double-quick; 
While the napkin, like a banner, 
Waves upon the stick! 

Here's enough of fame and pillage, 
Great commander Jane! 
Now that we've been round the village, 
Let's go home again.
