    Blood starts drippin' from the soldier's wound
    Seeps like sewage 'neath the politician's room

    Amidst the desert sands dawnings just begun,
    battle rages on, bombing veils the rising sun.

    How blue are the eyes of my darling
    And warm are her lips ruby red.
    How white are her arms of enchantment
    That beckon me into her bed.

    Beat! beat! drums!—blow! bugles! blow!
    Through the windows—through doors—burst like a ruthless force,
    Into the solemn church, and scatter the congregation,
    Into the school where the scholar is studying,

    All in the valley of Death
    Rode the six hundred.
