THE GENERAL
 
div
 
A mighty man of war, I've gained a height that's dizzy
I'm not the Commander-in-chief, still I'm particularly busy
My fine Bismarkian brow and Herculean stature
Makes all the dazzled fair ones say, 'Pip, pip, I'm looking at you.'

Chorus: I am a general a regular martinet
Though Kitchener may be hot, by Jove
Compared to him I'm the kitchen stove
If they upset my dignity, I play the very deuce, hence
When I go forth, beware of the wrath, of General Nuisance.

Chorus: I am a general a regular martinet
Though Kitchener may be hot, by Jove
Compared to him I'm the kitchen stove
If they upset my dignity, I play the very deuce, hence
When I go forth, beware of the wrath, of General Nuisance.
