Looking down the barrel of my rifle

I saw an enemy of my country

I squeezed the trigger and shook a trifle

but my heart said fire fire

the badge on his cap gleamed

he reeled and fell

an eternity it seemed

and he was safely off to hell

and likewise all enemies of my nation

who try to pass my station

for behind me wait my wife and child

the treatment you received was mild

and all who come to pass this way

if not our friends here they will stay
