The Musketeers by Bert Kalmar & Harry Ruby
(from the stage version of Animal Crackers)

Unless we tell you who we are, you'll never guess;
We're not Napoleon or da Vinci.
A lot of people think we are, but none the less,
We're not Napoleon or da Vinci.
We're not even Washington or Lincoln,
Jefferson or Alexander Carr;
You'd be wrong whoever you begin on
So we'll let you in on who we are.
So stand by, unseen listeners. (Bugle call)

Chorus:

We're four of the three musketeers.
We've been together for years.
Eenie, meenie, minee, (horn),
Four of the three musketeers.
We live by the sword, by the sea, by the way,
And we fight day and night,
And we sleep night and day,
My country 'tis of thee,
Land of the light wines and beers.
We're cheered from Cologne to Algiers.
Each time our motto appears,
It's one for all and two for five.
We're four of the three musketeers.


Patter:

When the Queen needs recreation and she strolls along the path,
Where are we? Right by her side.
When she's filled with jubilation or consumed with raging wrath,
Where are we? Right by her side.
We've sworn that we'd shield and protect her.
We're her guardsmen, true and tried.
When she gets up in the morning and she slips into her bath,
Where are we? Far from the old folks at home.

Second Chorus:

We're four of the three musketeers.
We've been together for years.
Athos, Pathos, Mathos, (horn),
Four of the three musketeers.
We fight for the King, for the Queen, for the Jack,
And we're first at the front
When the front's at the back.
Three cheers for Richelieu,
Here's how we give him the cheers. (Business)
The foe trembles each time it hears
This motto ring in its ears.
It's one for all and two for five.
We're four of the three musketeers.
