    Forgotten the words ... help

    Hi there,

    Can anyone remember the words to the second verse of
    The Grand Old Duke of York?

    It has been driving me crazy for days - since a friend asked me. I used to know them and since then **** song is running around in my head and won't budge till I have the whole thing sung..

    I've got as far as;

    He marched them to the left
    He marched them to the right

    At which point I'm going la la la la

    Please HELP ME!

    The Grand old Duke of York he had ten thousand men
    He marched them up to the top of the hill
    And he marched them down again.
    When they were up, they were up
    And when they were down, they were down
    And when they were only halfway up
    They were neither up nor down.

    He marched them to the left
    He marched them to the right
    And then he marched them upside down
    Oh, what a silly sight.

    Sara - Thanks So very much

    Now can remove the Grand Old Duke from my head - I hope.

    Once upon a time it was the likes of Madonna or Robbie Williams stuck in my head - wow how times have changed!!!

    Rani:

    Somehow the Duke has always been sung "the long version" in our family. The verse that I posted comes after yours...
