ROUTE MARCHIN'

Ho! get away, you bullock-man, you've 'eard the bugle blowed,
There's a regiment a-comin' down the Grand Trunk Road.
With its best foot first
And the road a-sliding past,
An' every bloomin' campin'-ground exactly like the last;
While the Big Drum says,
With 'is "rowdy-dowdy-dow"—"Kiko kissywarsti don't you hamsher argyjow?"[1]

  1. Why don't you get on?
