The Good Old N. P.

( Air — The Red, White, and Blue )

I

Now rise up men of the nation,
Rise up at your country's command,
Come forward whatever your station,
And shoulder-to-shoulder we'll stand.
We may differ in creed and in colour,
French and English and Red men are we,
But we're one for our cause and our country,
We are one for the good old N. P.

Chorus

Then three cheers for the good old N. P.,
Give a hearty three times three,
We are one for our cause and our country,
We are one for the good old N. P.

II

It has nourished the son of the city,
It has nourished the son of the soil,
Surrounded the workman with plenty,
Awarding with wages his toil.
It has fed both the lordly and lowly,
And Master and Man will agree,
And its foes are admitting, though slowly,
Success means the good old N. P.

Chorus

III

So rally ye sons of Protection,
And shoulder-to-shoulder we'll stand,
We'll gather from every direction,
From seaboard and lakeside and land;
For the tariff that fostered and fed us,
From the hour of its birth we began
To know, to prosperity it led us
And we'll stand by it now to a man.
