LaFayette

Should auld acquaintance be forget,
And never brought to mind?
The friends that’s true rememberd not,
And days of auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear,
We never can forget,
When dangers pressed and foes drew near,
Our friends was La Fayette.

When first our fathers bravely drew,
Against tyrants and their laws,
On wings of generous zeal he flew,
To aid the holy cause. Chorus-

He stemmed the broad Atlantic wave,
He vowed they should be free,
He led the bravest of the brave,
To death or victory. Chorus-

Let Brandywine his glory tell,
And Monmouth loud acclaim,
Let York in triumph proudly swell
