Let us take the road,

Hark, I hear the sound of coaches,
 +
The hour of attack approaches,
 +
To your arms, brave boys, and load.

See the ball I hold!

Let chemists toil like asses,

Our fire their fire surpasses

And turns all our lead to gold.

Let us take the road,
Hark, I hear the sound of coaches,
The hour of attack approaches,
To your arms, brave boys, and load.
See the ball I hold!
Let chemists toil like asses,
Our fire their fire surpasses
And turns all our lead to gold.
