Forward, we'll take Beersheba, spur up and on Light Horsemen 
  Ride on through dust and bullets, 'til we take Beersheba 
verse 1 
  Half a mile to the rise, we'll take the Turks by surprise 
  Keep the trot, hold the line, as we wait for the sign 
  Clear the brow of the hill, keep it steady until 
  We're in range of the guns and then we'll break into a run 
  Forward, we'll take Beersheba, spur up and on Light Horsemen 
  Ride on through dust and bullets, 'til we take Beersheba 
verse 2 
  Bayonnets flash in the sun, Johnnys squint down their guns 
  Captain Davies gives a yell, we went at 'em like hell 
  Riders fall, horses run, empty saddles splashed with blood 
  Turkish trenches 50 yards, Squadron A led the charge 
  Forward, we'll take Beersheba, spur up and on Light Horsemen 
  Ride on through dust and bullets, 'til we take Beersheba 
  Slouch hat with plumes a-flyin', spur up and on Light Horsemen 
  Ride on through dust and bullets, 'til we take Beersheba  ('hoyyyyyyyy)

BRIDGE 
  At full gallop, yelling madly 
  Pounding hooves go hell for leather 
  Flying horses clear the trenches 
  Man and beast leap up and over... 
  N.C. 
  Man and beast leap up and over... 
  Forward, we'll take Beersheba, spur up and on Light Horsemen 
  Ride on through dust and bullets, 'til we take Beersheba 
  Slouch hat with plumes a-flyin', spur up and on Light Horsemen 
  Ride on through dust and bullets, 'til we take Beersheba
