The desperate fight is lost; the battle is done. The brown lean ranks are scattered to the breeze. Their cherished weapons rusting in the sun. Their moldering guidons hidden by the leaves. No more the men who did not fear to die Will plug the broken line while through the din Their beaten comrades raise the welcome cry, "Make way, make way, the Scouts are moving in!"

And then the Scouts will form to be reviewed Each scattered unit now once more complete Each weapon and each bright crisp flag renewed And high above the cadence of their feet Will come the loud clear virile welcoming shout From many throats, before the feasts begin, Their badge of Honor mid their comrades rout- "Make way, make way, the Scouts are moving in!"
