In eighteen fourteen we took a little trip
Along with Colonel Packenham, up the mighty Mississip
We took a little bacon and we took a little beans
And we met up with the rebels near the town of New Orleans

We fired our guns and the rebels kept a comin
There wuzn't nigh as many as there wuz a while ago
We fired once more and they began a-runnin
On up the Mississippi from the Gulf of Mexico

We looked up the river and we see'd the rebels come
There must have been a hundred of them beatin on the drum
We stepped so high and we made our bugles ring
While they stood beside their cotton bales and didn't say a thing

We fired our guns and the rebels kept a comin
There wuzn't nigh as many as there wuz a while ago
We fired once more and they began a-runnin
On up the Mississippi from the Gulf of Mexico

Colonel Packenham said we'd take em by surprise
If we didn't fire a musket till we looked em in the eyes
We held our fire till we see'd their faces well
Then we opened up our muskets and really gave em hell

We fired our guns and the rebels kept a comin
There wuzn't nigh as many as there wuz a while ago
We fired once more and they began a runnin
On up the Mississippi from the Gulf of Mexico

We fired our cannon till the barrel melted down
So we grabbed an alligator and we fought another round
We filled his head with cannon balls and powered his behind
And when we touched the powder off the gator lost his mind

We fired our guns and the rebels kept a comin
There wuzn't nigh as many as there wuz a while ago
We fired once more and they began a-runnin
On up the Mississippi from the Gulf of Mexico

They ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles
And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go
They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch em
On up the Mississippi from the Gulf of Mexico
On up the Mississippi from the Gulf of Mexico
On up the Mississippi from the Gulf of Mexico
