     Hurrah! hurrah! old farmer, shout from your browntanned throat;
Pish! for each home-found man, to-day, who wears moustache or goat;
     For every male who well might go, but stays, a petticoat.
For it must be done, the people say, etc.

Hurrah! hurrah! old farmer's wife, you'll see the whole thing done;
     The maidens will be weaving it — you'll see the worsted spun;
The coward's be the petticoat--but it will not be your son.

For it must be done, the people say;
     It must be done, and now's the day;
It must be done, and this the way--
     Come list, my boys, enlist.
