The Duke Of Marlborough Lyrics

You generals all and champions bold who take delight in the field,
Who knock down palaces and castle walls and fight until they yield -
Oh I must go and face the foe without my sword and shield,
I always fought with my merry men, but now to death I must yield.

I am an Englishman by birth, and Malborough is my name
In Devonshire I drew my breath, that place of noted fame.
I was beloved by all my men, by Kings and Princes likewise,
Though many towns I often took, I did the world surprise.

Well good Queen Anne sent us abroad, to Flanders we did go,
And we left the Banks of Newfoundland, for to face the daring foe,
We climbed those lofty hills so high, where guns stones broke, likewise,
And all those famous towns we took and we won great victory.

King Charles the second I did serve, to face the foes in France,
And at the battle of Ramilles, we boldly did advance,
The sun was down and the moon did shine - so loudly did I cry:
"Fight on, me lads, for Fair England! We'll conquer or we'll die!"

Now we have gained the victory and bravely held the field,
We took a number of prisoners and forced them to yield,
That very day my horse got shot, all by a musket ball,
And 'ere I mounted up again, my second man did fall

Now on a bed of sickness prone, I am resigned to die,
You generals all and champions bold, stand true as well as I,
Unto your colours stand you true and fight with courage bold
I've led my men through fire and smoke but n'er was bribed by gold.

You generals all and champions bold who take delight in the field,
Who knock down palaces and castle walls and fight until they yield -
Oh I must go and face the foe without my sword and shield,
I always fought with my merry men, but now to death I must yield.
