lyrics

The Last Hurroo

Oh hear the throbbing hum of drums
The snapping flags in unison
The golden songs of Victory
That feed the stomp of Certainty

Long gone the crackling banners bright
Vanishing with Zeal overnight
Shame trumps Pride so easily
While Pity masks the Savagery

Chorus
Leave the toys and join the boys
With blinding steel in proud revue
All hail the Glorious Truth
The Mighty, Brave, Manhood Debut
Hurroo Hurroo Hurroo!

Hunger and Disease and Fear
Riding Death’s Pale Horse reappear
Oh why do we believe the lies
Of Valor, Honor and Certainty?

Chorus

Our trusting clear-eyed boys so true
With drums and guns - Hurroo! Hurroo!
Before your dancing days are through
Just listen through that drum tattoo

Chorus

They always lead from the rear
Behind the young hearts facing Fear
Behind the war-call buzz of drums
Misleading flags, bleeding guns

Chorus

So, lay down your sword and shield
And study war no more!
Hurroo
