[chordsandlyrics]Well you’ve [G]heard about the [D7]Indians with their [G]tommyhawks and [D7]spears
And [G]of the U.N. [C]warriors the [A]heroes of recent [D7]years
[G]Also I might [D7]mention the [G]British Grena[D7]diers
Well [C]none of them were [G]in it but the [Am7]Dublin Fusi[G]liers


You’ve [G]heard about the Light Brigade and of the deeds they’ve done
And [A]of the other regiments that many victories [D7]won
But the [G]pride of all the armies Dragoons and Carabiniers
Was that [C]noble band of [Am]war[G]ors the [G]Dublin [D7]Fusi[G]liers



Chorus

With your [G]left foot and right about face this is the way we go
[C]Charging with fixed [G]bayonets the [A7]terror of every [D7]foe
A [G]glory to old Ireland as proud as buccaneers
And a [C]terror to cre[Am]ation [G]are the [G]Dublin [D7]Fusi[G]liers[/chordsandlyrics]

Well you’ve heard about the wars between the Russians and the Brits
The sar’ one day was reading an old copy of ‘Titbits’
And when the General came to him and threw himself down in tears
‘We’d better run back like blazes, here’s the Dublin Fusiliers.’

The sar’ commenced to tremble and he bit his underlip
‘Begorra boys!’ says he, ‘I think we better take the tip
The devil’s come from Dublin and to judge from what I hears
They’re demons of militia men, the Dublin Fusiliers.’

Well the sergeant cried, ‘Get ready lads, lay down each sword and gun
Take off your shoes and stockings boys, and when I tell yous, run
They didn’t stop but started and amidst three ringing cheers,
Came a shower of bricks and bullets from the Dublin Fusiliers

The time that Julius Caesar tried to land down at Ringsend
The coastguards couldn’t stop them, so for the Dublins they did send,
And just as they were landing, lads, we heard three ringing cheers
‘Get back to Rome like blazes here’s the Dublin Fusiliers.’
