march of the timorous brigade

harumph, harumph
harumph, harumph
we are the reserves
a nickname we deserve
‘cuz to a man we have
our reservations
harumphing we will go
through wind and
rain and snow
harumphing we will march
with hesitation
harumphing we parade
the timorous brigade
harumphing we retreat
when things get heated

we’re rough
we’re tough
what do we got?
we got enough
we’re it
it’s definite
what are we?
we’re adequate
holy cow
the cat’s meow
what’ll we do?
we’ll do for now
