Barrack-Room Ballads. 41. The Service Man. Prelude to Service Songs in The Five Nations


TOMMY you was when it began,
      But now that it is oer
You shall be called The Service Man
      Enceforward, evermore. 
Battry, brigade, flank, centre, van,
      Defaulter, Army-corps 
From first to last, The Service Man
      Enceforward, evermore. 
From Allifax to Industan,
      From York to Singapore 
Orse, foot, an guns, The Service Man
      Enceforward, evermore!
