Subject: Lyr Add: TALLY-HO! (C P Raydon / Franco Leoni)
You can see the sheet music at the web site of York University. Only a few words are different from those already posted.


TALLY-HO!
Words, C. P. Raydon; music, Franco Leoni.
New York: G. Schirmer, Inc., ©1919.

1: There's a noise of galloping over the hill,
And the huntsman's horn rings merry and shrill.
See, here they come with a "View halloo!"
Hounds and horses and huntsmen too,
Galloping, galloping, galloping, galloping, galloping, galloping, galloping by.

[i. e. one more "galloping"]

2: The horses trample, the hounds they bay,
The riders' coats are scarlet and gay;
"Ho there, youngster!" the huntsmen cry,
"Say, have you seen the fox go by?"
Galloping, galloping, galloping, galloping, galloping, galloping, galloping by.

3: I look as stupid as I can be,
And never a word do they get from me;
Until in anger they shake the rein,
And start the rollicking hunt again,
Galloping, galloping, galloping, galloping, galloping, galloping, galloping by.

4: For would I be telling them? no, not I,
That I saw the fox go wearily by,
Wearily panting, worn and spent.
Would I be telling the way he went?
Galloping, galloping, galloping -- No, not I!
