1 Marching, marching, marching on to victory,
Raise our banner high,
Let it reach the sky;
Marching, marching, marching on to victory,
Lift the temp’rance banner high.
“Touch not, taste not, handle not” the dreadful thing,
Serpent fangs lie hidden in the bowl;
“Touch not, taste not, handle not” the dreadful thing,
Poison not the precious soul.

Refrain:
Brothers, let us then be
Marching, marching, marching on to victory,
Raise our banner high
Let it reach the sky;
Marching, marching, marching on to victory,
Lift the temp’rance banner high.

2 Marching, marching, marching on to victory,
See the dreadful foe!
Hear the cry of woe;
Weeping thousands urge us on to victory,
Falter not, but onward go.
Sweeping surging, like a mighty tidal wave,
Far and wide the whelming waters roll.
Victims soon will be beyond our pow’r to save,
Soon they’ll reach the horrid goal. [Refrain]
