I’M OFF TO FIGHT

“The Mascot” by John Weiss
“The Mascot” by John Weiss
I’m off, my friend,
to fight and win
I’m off to fight
the war

Stay safe and guard
the homestead, now
It’s more important
than before.

I won’t be here
for Mother
For her, I am afraid;

So, guard our home,
my friend,
‘tis why good dogs
were made.

Keep home safe for me,
my friend ~
Keep enemies at bay

Until you see me
marching home,
one grand and glorious day.
