W:He comes from dear old Dublin, he's a man we all applaud, W:For he always finds a corkscrew far more handy than a sword. W: W:He's good old General Guinness, he's a soldier strong and stout. W:He's found on every bottlefront, and he can't be done without! W:His noble name his world-wide fame, deserve three hearty cheers, W:Hurrah for General Guinness of the Dublin Booziliers! W: W:This hale and hearty warrior is worshipped in the ranks, W:For he does his task inside the cask, as well as in the tanks. W:He bears the brunt on every front, north, south, east, and west, W:And he wears about ten million canteen medals on his chest. W: W:He's good old General Guinness, he has won the world's applause. W:'Twas him who kept our spirits up in the midst of all our wars. W:Who was the first to flirt with Mademoiselle from Armentieres? W:Why good old General Guinness of the Dublin Booziliers. W: W:All over bonny Scotland too, the General is seen. W:They've given him the freedom of the toon of Aberdeen. W:From Inverness to Galashiels, he keeps them warm and bright, W:And they love to gather 'round him, och, on every moonlit night. W: W:He's good old General Guinness, he's as strong as Scottish broth, W:'Twas him who turned the Firth of Forth into the Firth of Froth. W:All Scotsman dance The Highland Fling and shout when he appears, W:Hurrah for General Guinness of the Dublin Booziliers.
