The British Light Infantry For battle prepared in their country's just cause Their king to avenge and support all his laws, Taleo, taleo, taleo, taleo As fierce as the tiger, as swift as the roe, The British Light Infantry rush on their foe, Taleo, taleo, taleo, taleo Taleo taleo taleo. Though rebels unnumbered oppose their career Their hearts are undaunted; they're strangers to fear; No obstacles hinder, resistless they go And death and destruction attend every blow. The alarm of the drum and the cannon's loud roar, The musket's quick flash, but inflames them the more. No dangers appall, for they fear no control But glory and conquest inspires every soul. Whenever their foe stands arranged in their sight With ardor impatient they pant for the fight Rout, havoc confusion they spread through the field And rebellion and treason are corced to yield. From Songbook of the American Revolution, Rabson tune: Black Sloven RG oct97
