Traditional
  1. Hark how the drums beat up again
    For all true soldier gentlemen
    Then let us list and march I say
    Over the hills and far away
    Over the hills and oer the main
    To Flanders, Portugal and Spain
    Queen Anne commands and well obey
    While over the hills and far away
  2. All gentlemen that have a mind
    To serve a queen thats good and kind
    Come list and enter into pay
    Then over the hills and far away.
    Over the hills and oer the main
    To Flanders, Portugal and Spain
    Queen Anne commands and well obey
    While over the hills and far away
  3. The prentice Tom he may refuse
    To wipe his angry Masters shoes
    For if he free to sing and play
    Would over the hills and far away.
    Over the hills and oer the main
    To Flanders, Portugal and Spain
    Queen Anne commands and well obey
    While over the hills and far away
  4. No more from sounds of drums retreat
    Whiles Marlborough and Galway beat
    The French and Spanish evry day
    When over the hills and far away
    Over the hills and oer the main
    To Flanders, Portugal and Spain
    Queen Anne commands and well obey
    While over the hills and far away
  5. We shall then lead more happy lives
    By getting ris of brats and wives
    That scold us both on day and night
    So over the hills and far away.
    Over the hills and oer the main
    To Flanders, Portugal and Spain
    Queen Anne commands and well obey
    While over the hills and far away
