If you know where to get a good pho­to of Howes (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), would you ?


We are little soldiers,
Fighting for our king;
Don’t you love to hear us,
As we so gladly sing?


Tramp, tramp, tramp,
We are coming, coming, coming!
Tramp, tramp, tramp,
Coming with an army strong;
Tramp, tramp, tramp,
We are coming, coming, coming, coming,
Fighting everything that’s wrong.

Satan will entrap us,
If we don’t look out;
When we see him coming,
We raise our army shout.


We are little soldiers,
But we know the right;
When the foe is near us,
We pray, and sing with might.
