This is your flag — Fight for it.
This slogan of the 207th has
been made the title of a
stirring song dedicated to
the 207th Battalion — Read it —
Words by Miss Esther Knott.
Music by Donald Heins.
How would you care to see the old flag down, boys,
Would you care to see her dragged in the mire?
Could you bear to hear it said
That you crawled beneath the bed,
While the rest of us were standing up to fire?
Would you care to hear the Kaiser was in England;
That his fleet was on the way to Old Quebec?
Would you care to have the girls
With the pretty golden curls,
See you get a German bayonet in the neck?
Come on the (sic) boys, this is your flag,
And it surely means to you
That the world expects to see your tag
And believes that you’ll be true.
Come on, boys, this is your flag,
Show the red blood — and the blue —
For the men are white —
Who join the fight —
And surely you’ll be true.
