Marching To Pretoria Lyrics ID: 2664

[Marais version]

We are marching to Pretoria, Pretoria, Pretoria
We are marching to Pretoria
Pretoria, Hooorah!

You sing with me, I'll sing with you and so we will sing together
So we will sing together
So we will sing together
Sing with me, I'll sing with you and so we will sing together
As we march along.

We are marching to Pretoria, Pretoria, Pretoria
We are marching to Pretoria
Pretoria, Hooorah!

[Colquhoun version - Title: Marching On Pretoria]

When the call to arms went forth our hearts were blithe and glad
[Castles ...?] gave forth the bravest blood they had
Every English meadow yielded up its human lad
To March! March! March! on Pretoria

Hooraah! Hooraah! From hill and dale they come
Hooraah! Hooraah! They've made the business home
Round the world you heard that beat of Britain's ceaseless drum
When we went marching on Pretoria

Far from overseas our brothers flocked to join the flag
Joining us at British part was neither bluff nor brag
Foot to foot they stood with us beneath that dear old flag
When we went marching on Pretoria

Hooraah! Hooraah! oh play thee a bonnie song
Hooraah! Hooraah! The smart Canadian call
They have known that in their veins, the blood of Britain runs
When we went marching on Pretoria

Cheer up boys and sing good luck to all our gallant men
Who fought for the Empire out in Africa and when
They have brought the seas once more we welcome home again
Conquerors of proud Pretoria

Hooraah! Hooraah! Foot-soldiers of the King
Hooraah! Hooraah! Their praises let us sing
Victory they have brought us back wherever they have been
And now they are coming home from Pretoria

Recorded by Josef Marais and Miranda; Ian Colquhoun; The Weavers; many others.
