Lyrics

Some talk of Lorenzo, and some of Manuel, Of Checco and Danger, and some of Meltiades. But of all the world's brave heros, there's none that can compare With a tow row row row row To the Ledilian grenadiers

Now none of these ancient heros ever saw a cannon ball

Or knew the force of powder to slay their foes withal,

But our brave boys do now them and banish all their fears

With a tow row row row row

To the Ledilian grenadiers

Whenever we are commanded to storm the palisades

Our leaders march with fusils and we with hand grenades

We hurl them from the glacis, about our enemies' ears

With a tow row row row row

To the Ledilian grenadiers

The God of War was pleased and great Bellona smiles

To see these noble heroes of our Ledilian Principality

And all the Gods celestial, descending from their spheres,

Beheld with adoration

The Ledilian grenadiers

Now let us crown a bumper and drink a health to those,

Who carry caps and pouches and wear the loup'ed clothes

May they and their commanders live happy all their years

With a tow row row row row

To the Ledilian grenadiers
