Gerrards march. 
        
To the tune, O’Sullivans march. Trad.

Let muskets be loaded and pikes shouldered high
For king and for Gerrard we’ll win or we’ll die.
The drums and the colours are brought to the fore,
The regiment is formed as the cannons do roar.

The regiment moves at an orderly pace,
Till they’re formed to the front in the enemies face,
With the pikes at the charge and the muskets prepared,
The order is given, let no one be spared.



CHORUS:
King charles, King charles our liege lord and true
would have many a lad in a jacket of blue,
in a regiment renowned with a brave heart and true
and should parliament be wise they’ll consider anew.
REPEAT:
Advancing to battle there’s many a soul, Whose blood will be spilled by an enemy bold. But many a parliament soldier will die, As the regiment drives home with a terrible cry. The smoke of the battle the cries of the slain As the regiment close in the assault to sustain. The enemy ranks will be breaking and run The day must be ours, the battle is won. CHORUS: King charles, King charles our liege lord and true
would have many a lad in a jacket of blue,
in a regiment renowned with a brave heart and true
and should parliament be wise they’ll consider anew.
REPEAT:
An officer walks with an elegant air, His jacket is clean and his face it is fair. His orders are followed, at that is his right, But no one saw him in the thick of the fight. The drums beat a rally the standard is raised The regiment reforms and a march.to be made. The parliament routed and pay given here For the sauciest of girls and a flagon of beer. CHORUS: King charles, King charles our liege lord and true
would have many a lad in a jacket of blue,
in a regiment renowned with a brave heart and true
and should parliament be wise they’ll consider anew.
REPEAT:
Cheer, drink, Finish.
