THE FAMOUS LIGHT BRIGADE
(from the singing of Patrick Tayluer)
(Doerflinger - 'Songs of the Sailor and Lumberman' - pp276-277)
It was a fa-mous sto-ry, pro-claim it far and wide,
And let your child-ren's chidl-ren re-ech-o it with pride;
When old Car-di-gan, the fear-less, his name im-mor-tal made,
When he charged through the Rooosh-ian val-ley,
with his fa-mous Light Brig-ade.
Brave Nolan brought the order, Good God, can it be true?
For me to charge those massive gunds with this brigade so few!
It is the order given, sir, and you must obey.
So take my tip and ride away, and go to hell with them all.
Then is was a famous story, proclaim it far and wide
And let your children's children re-echo it with pride;
When old Cardigan, the fearless, his name immortal made,
When he charged through the Rooosh-ian valley,
with his famous Light Brigade.
