1. CWell, in 1814, we Ftook a little trip, aGlong with Colonel Packenham down the Cmighty Mississipp. We took a little bacon and we Ftook a little beans, and we Gfought the bloomin’ British in the town of New Orleans Well, we Cfired our guns and the British kept a comin', there wasn't nigh as many as there Gwas a while Cago. We fired once more and they began a running, on down the Mississippi to the GGulf of CMexico. 2. Well, we Clooked down the river till we Fsee the British come, there Gmust have been a hundred of 'em Cbeatin' on the drum. They stepped so high and they Fmade the bugles ring, well, weG stood beside our cotton bales and never said a thing. + CHORUS 3. Well, PackenCham said we could Ftake ‘em by surprise, if we Gdidn't fire a musket till we Clooked `em in the eyes. Well, we stood quite still till weF see their face well, then we Gopened up our muskets and we really gave ‘em well. Well, we Cfired our guns and the British kept a comin', there wasn't nigh as many as there wGas a while Cago. We fired once more and they began a running, on down the Mississippi to the GGulf of MexiCco. 4. Well, they Cran through the briars and they Fran through the brambles, and they Gran through the bushes where the Crabbits couldn't go. They ran so fast that the Fhounds couldn't catch ‘em, all Gdown the Mississippi to the CGulf of Mexico. + CHORUS 5. Well, we Cfired our muskets so the Fbarrels melted down, then grGabbed an alligator and we Cfought another round. Well, we stuffed his head with cannon balls and Fpowdered his behind, so Gwhen we touched the powder off, the 'gator lost his mind. + CHORUS CDown the Mississippi to the GGulf of MexiCco. (4x)
