When we read in lines heroic
Of the valor of the Jap,
And of how the vaunting Russian
Has proved the softest snap,
How on MIukden's gory field
The Japs hurled shot and shell
Until the Russianvitchskis
Had to run like-well,
And of how the Russian fleet
Was by Admiral Togo sunk
And poor old Nebogatoff
Was, oh, so badly skunked,
Then give hip, hip hurrah!
For the little yellow Japski
Who came so near to wiping
The Russians off the mapski
But just one little question
Before we give that yell,
Just one interrogation
Take time and ponder well:
What's the use, I want to know,
Of winning on land or sea.
If the japs can't win
In the battle Diplomacy?
