How're th' boys? An' how's th' fleet? Little weary?—Never mind. You oan rest when you're inolined; Rest on Laurels, if you please, On a hero's couoh of eaga; Not, however, till we've had Chance to show you that we're glad: Glad you're not now with the dead- Glad you had a level head- Glad you laid the Spaniard ibw— Glad you proved a noble foe- Glad you kept your record clean— Glad we made you a marine; Glad you bravely fought and won— Glad for evety thing you've done; Glad? By gad, we're glad, my lad, That George Dewey had a dad; Glad he had a mother, who, Loyal to Red, "White and Blue- Years ago when he was young- Taught him how to,—rung by rung,— Mount Fame's ladder—never stop, Till, by grit, he gained the topi Taught him, when he'd won the flght, How to stay there, on tho height. Glad to see you, George, but—say Don't get spoiled on Dewey day; Don't get "rattled" at the noise, Made by millions of my boys; Most of whom would "lead tbe dance" If, like you, they had the chance. Words like these all men admire: "Gridley, when you're ready, flre." Keep that up,—keep cool, my lad, We'll raise Cain because we're glad. You just "watch our smoke," my boy. Note our overwhelming joy; Don't get dizzy—calm content Sometimes makes a president. Hear that shouting, prolonged, loud? George, th' whole darnednntion'sproudr Proud ot what you did that day In Manilla's beastly bay. Proud of you, proud of a fleet That knows no fear—knows no defeat.
