Title
Our city fire brigade
Additional title: Ding, ding goes the bell, the "boys" are out again, To save a life, a child, or wife at night in storm or rain, Fear not the falling walls and fire, we know they're not afraid, God bless the noble felows in our city fire brigade. [first line of chorus]
Additional title: I'll speak about the bravest men, that e're the world hath known, Their deeds of brav'ry day and night, to eve'ry nation shown, So, when you hear the fire alarm, a thought pray give to those, Who risk their lives at every fire, our heroes of the hose. [first line]
