Song 125: "Boney was a Warrior"

Boney was a warrior, 
Wey, hay, yah
A warrior, a terrier, 
John François

Boney went to school in France. 
He learnt to make the people dance 

Boney was a general,
A rorty, snorty general,

Boney fought the Prussians.
The Austrians and Russians

He beat the Prussians squarely.
He beat the British - nearly

We beat him at Trafalgar Bay.
Blew his topmast away

Boney went to Moscow,
Lost his army in the snow

Moscow was a-blazing
And Boney was a-raging.

They sent him off to Elba.
He came back, made a show

On the plains of Waterloo
The Iron Duke he put him through

Then they took him off again
Aboard the Billy Ruffian.

Sent him off to Saint Helena
He never came back again

The sent him into exile.
He died on Saint Helena's isle

Boney broke his heart and died
On Corsica he wished he'd stayed

Boney was a warrior, 
Wey, hay, yah
A warrior, a tarrier, 
John François
