Ye boys and girls that have a mind..
To leave your troubles far behind.
Enlist and take a soldiers' pay.
Go over the hills and far away!

We'll fight in dry Afghanistan,
To keep the peace in foreign lands.
Learn the real soldiers' way,
Go over the hills and far away!

Come and join the infantry,
Where the real soldiers fight, you'll see..
Our comrades we will not betray,
Over the hills and far away.

It's safe at home; we'd rather stay,
Watch our children grow and play.
We owe the crown, so now we'll pay,
We're over the hills and far away.

Over the hills we'll march today,
And The Queen has called so we obey.
We'll stand our ground and here we'll stay..
Over the hills and far away!

[Accordion/Flute solo]

The politicians sleep at night,
While out here we will stand and fight.
English, French, we're brothers all,
Remember us if here we fall

Over the hills we'll march today,
And The Queen has called so we obey.
We'll stand our ground and here we'll stay..
Over the hills and far away!

Over the hills we'll march today,
And The Queen has called so we obey.
We'll stand our ground and here we'll stay..
Over the hills and far away!
