|Alternative Title||First line of text: Most ev'ry fellow has a sweetheart|
|First line of chorus: It's time for ev'ry boy to be a soldier|
VERSE 01: Most ev’ry fellow has a sweet heart/Some little girl with eyes of blues/My daddy also had a sweetheart/And he fought to win her too/There’ll come a day when we must pay the price of love and duty/Be there staunch and true.
CHORUS: It’s time for ev’ry boy to be a soldier/To put his strength and courage to the test/It’s time to place a musket on his shoulder/And wrap the Stars and Stripes around his breast/It’s time to shout those noble words of Lincoln/And stand up for the land that gave you birth/”That the nation of the people by the people for the people Shall not perish from the earth”
VERSE 02: Boys of America get ready/Your motherland is calling you/Boys of America be steady/For the Old Red White and Blue/When Yankee Doodle comes to town up on his little pony/Be there staunch and true.
