War Like Lads Of Russia

When Napoleon Bonaparte to Moscow he went
With all his troops and all his men their minds were fully bent
To take the Russian country they were fully employed
But the Russians fought against them and they soon did them destroy.

Well in a little while the Russians did attack
'Gainst Bonaparte and all his men they fought them and they drove them back
The action being so hot right and left and front and rear
A damn you all says Bonaparte I'll stay no longer here.

Those war like lads of Russia they fought all in one mind
Made Bonaparte to run and leave his troops behind
Those war like lads of Russia they fought all in one mind
Made Bonaparte to run and leave his troops behind.

Away then went poor Bonaparte as fast as he could run
The poor Frenchmen looked after him left horses men and guns
His boxes and his matches ammunition wagons too
He left them all behind him well what could poor Boney do?

Those war like lads of Russia they fought all in one mind
Made Bonaparte to run and leave his troops behind
Those war like lads of Russia they fought all in one mind
Made Bonaparte to run and leave his troops behind.

Away then went poor Bonaparte as fast as he could ride
The poor Frenchmen looked after him saying oh it's very hard
To think he'd lead us all up here and leave us to our fate
You'd think he'd stop along with us and help us in our state.

Those war like lads of Russia they fought all in one mind
Made Bonaparte to run and leave his troops behind
Those war like lads of Russia they fought all in one mind
Made Bonaparte to run and leave his troops behind.

Here's eighty thousand men from 'em they've killed and they have taken
Likewise ten thousand horses and two hundred bits of cannon
Never more to Leon Paris or French Flanders they're advanced
For if I do I may be sure they'll teach me how to dance.

Those war like lads of Russia they fought all in one mind
Made Bonaparte to run and leave his troops behind
Those war like lads of Russia they fought all in one mind
Made Bonaparte to run and leave his troops behind.

Now it's to conclude and thus to finish off me song
Old Boney's men and Russia wish they had a hold of him
The cruellest death they'd put him to that ever a man befell
Oh damn you all says Bonaparte I'm clear of you all.

Those war like lads of Russia they fought all in one mind
Made Bonaparte to run and leave his troops behind
Those war like lads of Russia they fought all in one mind
Made Bonaparte to run and leave his troops behind.

Those war like lads of Russia they fought all in one mind
Made Bonaparte to run and leave his troops behind
Those war like lads of Russia they fought all in one mind
Made Bonaparte to run and leave his troops behind.
