Lyrics

1
A for artillery, pride of the line,
B is for battery, the battery sublime,
C for correction which gives us the fuse,
And D for the dragropes we seldom must use.

Chorus
Oh merry, oh merry, oh merry are we,
We are the boys of the Artillery.
Sing high, sing low, wherever we go,
Artillery gunners they never say no.

Recorded by Steve Gardham at Longcroft School, Beverley, where George taught history, 2nd July 1982.
