Rally around boys…
speak not to me of retreat, surrender or defeat!
Sound the charge loud and clear for we shall
send the enemy to hell where the devil they
shall surly meet!

Forward lancers! Charge!!
Straight-ahead boys! To the pickets
we shall gallop! Flag-Bearer, keep the
Union Jack flying steady, so the enemy
shall know we are bound and ready!

Through the smoke and canon fire they bravely
charged, six hundred strong into the Valley of Death.
Where they fiercely fought one on one and
English blood ran deep on that frozen battlefield forlorn…
for Queen and Country.

Forgotten not…
for the echoes of bravery will forever sound…
Forward Lancers… Charge!
