A Fenian Song

A Fenian Song

The Queen’s Own Regiment was their name
from fair Toronto town they came
to put the Irish all to shame
the Queen’s and Colonel Boker

what fury fills each loyal mind?
no volunteer would stay behind
they flung their red rag to the wind
“Hurrah, my boys!” said Boker

now helter skelter Ohio
see how they play that “heel and toe”
see how they run from their Irish foe
The Queen’s and Colonel Boker!
