Click to Listen

SEE THE SOLDIER DRESSED IN WHITE,
REGEMENTS OF YORKSHIRE MIGHT,
FREE BEER AND HOME RULE COME WHAT MAY,
SING THE BOYS OF THE Y. R. A.

SING TOGETHER HEADS HELD HIGH,
LEEDS LEEDS LEEDS OUR RALLYING CRY
AND TELL THE SCUM
YOU HEARD TODAY
THE BATTLE HYMN
OF THE Y. R. A.

ALL RESISTANCE YOU WILL RUE,
WE HAVE THE MEN
AND BRAVERY TOO,
TO CLAIM OUR CROWN
LEEDS PROUD AND TRUE,
AND RAISE THE FLAG
OF YELLOW WHITE AND BLUE.

AND SING TOGETHER HEADS HELD HIGH,
LEEDS LEEDS LEEDS OUR RALLYING CRY,
AND TELL THE SCUM YOU HEARD TODAY
THE BATTLE HYMN,
OF THE Y. R. A.

BENEATH THE KOP
THAT HALLOWED TURF,
WHERE REVIES ASHES' BROUGHT REBIRTH
OH TO BE
THAT BLADE OF GRASS
AND BOW BEFORE
THE ASSEMBLED MASS.

WHO SING TOGETHER HEADS HELD HIGH,
LEEDS LEEDS LEEDS
IS OUR RALLYING CRY,
AND TELL THE SCUM
YOU HEARD TODAY
THE BATTLE HYMN,
OF THE Y. R. A.
