The Two Goliaths

GOLIATH was a giant, the bully of his side,
His coat of mail was brazen, his face was
fierce with pride;

So he stood up to the bully, and rolled him in the
Those days are gone for ever, but the bully strain

But the drubbing Tommy gave him has caused him
much surprise ;
And a hasty memorandum in the Teuton mind is
‘The little British Army must never be ignored.”
