Verse 1: Here’s to the boys of our battalion Strong fellows brave and true They’re going to fight for our country, To fight for our Red, White and Blue So let us be up and doing Yes doing our bit alone For we can knit socks for our soldier boys and keep the fires burning at home
Chorus: So Here’s to the boys of the One-Six-O. Cheer them on for they’re soon to go, To lick the Kaiser and to fight like sin And they won’t let up till they get to Berlin (Spoken: Just see them) They will fight and do what’s right For the land they love, And when they meet the foe, Three cheers for the “One-Six-O” (Hurry up, hurry up, and join them).
Verse 2: Here’s to the boys of our battalion They’re going to fight to show What can be done for our country. They’ll do their bit and we know They’ll bring back the flag of freedom There’ll not be a flag of truce For every man will be on his job and bring back the honor to Bruce.
