The end of the Civil War was near
When quite accidentally,
A hero who sneezed, abruptly seized
Retreat and reversed it to victory!
His Medal of Honor pleased and thrilled
His proud little family group;
While pinning it on, some blood was spilled
And so it was planned he’d command… F TROOP!
Where Indian fights are colorful sights
And nobody takes a lickin’,
Where paleface and redskin
Both turn chicken!
When drilling and fighting get them down
They know their morale can’t droop
As long as they all relax in town
Before they resume with a bang and a boom… F TROOP!
