The trupet sounds with loud alarms,
The Whigs and Locos fly to arms,
Their Generals martial up each train
The presidential prize to gain.
For Scott, for Scott the Whigs do cry,
For Pierce, the Locos make reply,
While rolling thunders far away
Proclaim for our old Chippeway.
.Let Loco Focos vote for Frank
Their voting will turn out a blank,
The honored prize they cannot draw
For it is reserved for Chippeway.
Old Chippeway's a first rate horse
To run upon the Union course,
A hasty bowl of soup he'll take
And carry off the highest stake.
He'll beat your Pierce in any weather
Though j'ou have dubbed him fuss and feather,
With every bowl of soup he takes,
You'll see the Locos get the shakes.
You think to fire upon his rear
And thus you hope the track to clear,
But you will find it but a draw,
The White House is fur Chippeway.
