Grand Old Duke

Lyrics

Oh the Grand Old Duke of York
He had ten thousand men
He marched them up to the top of the hill
And he marched them down again

And when they were up they were up
And when they were down they were down
And when they were only half way up
They were neither up nor down

Oh the Grand Old Duke of York
He had ten thousand men
They tiptoed up to the top of the hill
To see the dragon in his den

But when the dragon saw them it roared
When the dragon saw them it roared
When the dragon saw them it roared so loud
They came running down again

Run run, don’t wait!
Run run, don’t wait!
Run run as fast as you can
And can the last one shut the gate?

Ssshhh the Duchess said
Ssshhh the Duchess said
The Grand Old Duke and all of his men
Are hiding in their beds

Oh the Grand Old Duke of York
He had ten thousand men
He marched them up to the top of the hill
And he marched them down again

And when they were up they were up
And when they were down they were down
And when they were only half way up
They were neither up nor down
And when they were only half way up
They were neither up nor down
