The Hurrah Song!

Up, Whigs! with banners to the sky,
Hurra! Hurra! Hurra!
To victory we now draw nigh.
Hurra! Hurra! Hurra!
Old Rough and Ready takes the lead,
Three cheers for Zack and his white steed —
Hurra! Hurra! Hurra!

On Palo Alto's bloddy plain,
His storm of bullets fell like rain;
And Palma's broken ground has shown
That victory is e'er his own.

At Monterey he won the fight,
By daring deeds from morn till night;
Whilst Buena Vista stamp'd our flag —
"A little more grape now, Captain Bragg!"

So here's three cheers for our defenders;
For "General Taylor ne'er surrenders!"
From frigid Maine to warm Arkansas,
He'll beat that man of "circumstances."

Three cheers we'll give and now three more
For Rough and Ready and Fillmore;
For every State stands firm and steady,
To give her vote to Rough and Ready.
