O mount and go,
Mount and make you ready,
O mount and go
And be a captain's lady.

When the drums do beat
And the cannons rattle,
Thou shalt sit in state
And see thy love in battle.
O mount and go,
Mount and make you ready,
O mount and go
And be a captain's lady.

When the vanquished foe
Sues for peace and quiet,
To the shades we'll go
And in love enjoy it.
O mount and go,
Mount and make you ready,
O mount and go
And be a captain's lady.
