[62] “And if, in league with her of Spain,
     With all the past forgotten,
You dare to lift the hand of Cain
     In aid of old King Cotton,
Be sure to guard those costly toys
     You call your broad dominions,
For I have lots of Yankee boys
     Can flog your hireling minions.”
chorus.--Yank Doodle, &c.

“I trust in God and in the right,
     And in this mighty nation;
And in this cause would freely fight
     The whole combined creation;
For when, in Time's impartial gaze,
     The nations are reviewed all,
I know the meed of honest praise
     Will rest on Yankee Doodle.”
chorus.--Yankee Doodle, &c.
