Glorious news! Nap's landed again in France, hurrah! -- Napoleon has humbugged me, by God! -- the fate of France is in your hands! -- Avancez, mes enfants, courage, encore une fois, Français! -- Ah! Now I've got them, those English! -- A cannon ball came from the Lord knows where and took the head off our right-hand man -- The Big Boots don't like rough stuff! -- Those terrible grey horses, how they fight! --We had our revenge! Such slaughtering! -- The most beautiful troops in the world -- Defend yourselves! Defend yourselves! They are coming in everywhere! -- Next to a battle lose, the greatest misery is a battle gained -- Aftermath : a thousand shall fall beside thee, and ten thousand at thy right hand, but it shall not come nigh thee
