Ye boys and girls that have a mind,
To leave your troubles far behind,
Enlist and take a soldier's pay,
Go over the hills and far away.

We'll fight in dry Afghanistan,
Or keep the peace in foreign lands;
Learn the real soldiers' way,
Go over the hills and far away.

Over the hills we march today,
The Queen has called so we obey;
We'll stand our ground and here we'll stay,
Over the hills and far away.

Come and join the infantry,
Where the real soldiers fight, you'll see;
Our comrades we will not betray,
Over the hills and far away.

Safe at home we'd rather stay,
Watch our children grow and play;
We owe the crown, and now we'll pay,
We're over the hills and far away.

Over the hills we march today,
The Queen has called so we obey;
We'll stand our ground and here we'll stay,
Over the hills and far away.

The politicians sleep at night,
While out here we will stand and fight;
English, French, we're brothers all,
Remember us if here we fall.

Over the hills we march today,
The Queen has called so we obey;
We'll stand our ground and here we'll stay,
Over the hills and far away.

Over the hills we march today,
The Queen has called so we obey;
We'll stand our ground and here we'll stay,
Over the hills and far away.
