The Henley and South Oxfordshire Standard, 2 October 1914
Oh! give me the strength of the lion,
The wisdom of Reynard the fox,
And then I’ll hurl troops at the Germans,
And give them the hardest of knocks.
Oh! think of the War lord’s mailed fist,
That is striking at England to-day:
And think of the lives that our soldiers
Are fearlessly throwing away.
Awake! oh you young men of England,
For if, when your Country’s in need
You do not enlist by the thousand,
You truly are cowards indeed.
