The Emperor Nap he would setoff On a summer excursion to Moscow; The fields were green, and the sky was blue, Morbleu! Parbleu ! What a pleasant excursion to Moscow ! Four hundred thousand men and more Must go with him to Moscow ; There were Marshals by the dozen, And Dukes by the score: Princes a few, and Kings one or two ; While the fields are so green, and the sky so blue, Morbleu ! Parbleu ! What a pleasaut excursion to Moscow ! There was Junot and Angereau, Heigh ho for Moscow ? Dcmbrowsky and Poniatowekv, General Rapp, and Emperor Nap; Nothing would do, While the fields were so greeu, and the sky so blue, Morbleu! Parbleu! But they must be marching to Moscow. " But the Russians stoutly they turned to Upon the road to Moscow. Nap had to tight bis way all through They could tight, though they could not par lcz-vous; But the fields were green, and the sky was blue, Morbleu! Parbleu! And so he got to Moscow. lie found the place too hot for him, For they had set tire to Moscow, To get there had cost him much ado; And then no better cour>e be knew, While the fields were green and the sky was blue, Morbleu ! Parbleu ! But to inarch back again from Moscow. The Russians they stuck close to him All on the road from Moscow,. There was Toriuazow and Jemalow And all the others that end in ow ; Milarodovitch and Jalodevitch, . And Karactchkowitch, ' And all the others that end in itch: Schamscheff, Souchosaneff, And Schepalelf, And all the others that end in off; Wasiltschikoff.

And all the others in eflVky; Csliaroffskv and Rostoffsky, Ami ail the others that end in off-ky; And Plntoffhe played them off. And Slmuvaloff heshovel’d them off, And Markoff he mark'd them off, And Krosnoff he cross’d them off. And Tuchkoff he touch'd them ott, And Boreskoff he hored them ott’, And Kutousoff he cut them off, And Parenzoff he pared them ott. Ami Woronzoffhe worried them off. And Poctoroff he doctor’d them off, And Rodinott* lie ttogg’d them off, And, last of all, and Admiral came, A terrible man with a terrible name, A name which you all know by sight very well But which no one can speak, and no one can spell, Thev stuck close to Xap with all theirroight; They were on the left and on the right. Behind and before, and by day ami by night; He would rather parloz-vous than fight; But parlez-vous no more would do, For they remembered Moscow. And then came on the frost and snow, All on the road from Moscow. The field* w ere so white, and the sky so blue; Sacrebleu! Ventrebleu! What a horrible journey from Moscow. The devil take the hindmost, ijuotli Xap, Ali on the roud from Moscow! For he thought it small delight, To fight all day and freeze all night, And so, not know ing what else to do, When tho fields were so white, and the sky so blue, Morhlcu! Parbleu! He stole away, 1 tell you true, All on the road from Jloscow. 'Twas as much too cold upon the road As 'twas too hot in Moscow; But there is a place which he must go to. Where the fire is red and the brimstone blue, Morbleu ! Parbleu? He'll find it hotter than Moscow’!
