Galleghan's Greyhounds
Step out, straight out, Soldiers on Parade.
Left turn, right turn, drilling has it made;
Covering all the countryside,
Quickens our step and stretches our stride.

Chorus:
Here's to the Second Thirtieth greyhounds.
Here's to "Black Jack" Galleghan's men.
Springy as steel and tougher than rawhide,
Ready to strike and rally again.
Forward the Greyhounds! Forward the Greyhounds!
When the game's afoot, we will lead in the fray;
Forward the Greyhounds! Forward the Greyhounds!
Forward the Greyhounds and lead all the way.

Cookhouse bugle calls us up for stew,
Duty Corporal's turning on a blue,
Quartermaster makes a fuss,
The Sergeant-Major's shouting at us.

Chorus: here's to the Second Thirtieth Greyhounds..........

When we're sailing far across the sea,
Home-folk's hopes for us will always be;
On desert sands or tropical isle,
Fortune's face will give us a smile.

Chorus: here's to the Second Thirtieth Greyhounds..........

We'll come back home when the job is done,
Peace bells ringing, joining in the fun,
Wave to us as we march along
Light of heart and singing our song.

Chorus: here's to the Second Thirtieth Greyhounds..........

Quickens our step and stretches our stride.

When the game's afoot, we will lead in the fray;
Forward the Greyhounds! Forward the Greyhounds!
Forward the Greyhounds and lead all the way.
