Traditional
  1. Now, come , my brave boys, as Ive told you before,
    Come drink, my brave boys, and well boldly call for more,
    For the French theyve invaded and they say that they will try,
    They say that they will come and drink old England dry
    Aye dry, aye dry my boys, aye dry,
    They say that they will come and drink old England dry.
  2. Supposing we should meet with the Russians by the way,
    Tenthousand to one we will show them British play,
    With our swords and our cutlasses well fight until we die,
    Before that they shall come and drink old England dry.
    Aye dry, aye dry my boys, aye dry,
    They say that they will come and drink old England dry.
  3. Then up spake old Churchill of fame and renown,
    He swears hell come true to his country and crown,
    For the cannons they shall rattle and the bullets they shall fly,
    Before that they shall come and drink old England dry.
    Aye dry, aye dry my boys, aye dry,
    They say that they will come and drink old England dry.
  4. Then its drink, my brave boys, as Ive told you before,
    Come drink, my brave boys, till you cannot drink no more,
    For those French dogs they may boast but their brags are all my eye,
    They say that they will drink old England dry.
    Aye dry, aye dry my boys, aye dry,
    They say that they will come and drink old England dry.
