Elephants on parade

For some reason, I had the Dawn Patrol's march running through my head today. It would make a great hiking song. (I really need to get out in the back country!)

Hup, two, three, four
Keep it up, two, three, four
Hup, two, three, four
Keep it up, two, three, four
Hup, two, three, four
Company, sound off!

Oh, the aim of our patrol
Is a question rather droll
For to march and drill
Over field and hill
Is a military goal!
Is a military goal!

With a hup, two, three, four
Dress it up, two, three, four

By the ranks or single file
Over every jungle mile
Oh we stamp and crush
Through the underbrush
In the military style!
In the military style!

Hup, two, three, four
Hup, two, three, four
Keep it up, two, three, four.

Oh we march from here to there
And it doesn't matter where
You can hear us push
Through the deepest bush
Hup, two, three, four
With a military air!
With a military air.
[they trumpet]

We're a crackerjack brigade
On a pachyderm parade
But we'd rather stroll
To a water hole
Hup, two, three, four
For a furlough in the shade.
(For a furlough in the shade.)
