-Walt Disney


Marching,
Marching,
Left, right, left, right.
Brave soldier boy,
Glinting bullet capsules boy,
Black gun powder boy,
Wears the colors boy.
Marching,
Marching,
Left, right, left.
Young soldier boy,
Loose cap boy,
Boots too big boy,
Drags his feet boy.
Marching,
Marching,
Left, right.

Naïve soldier boy.
Shields his eyes from the sun boy,
In the crosshairs boy,
No one notices boy.
Marching,
Marching.
Left, right, left, right.
