"The Grand Old Duke of York"

also known as
"The Noble Duke of York"

       
 
1.

Oh, the grand old Duke of York,
He had ten thousand men;
He marched them up to the top of the hill,
And he marched them down again.

 
       
 
2.
And when we're up, we're up,
And when we're down we're down,
And when we're only half way up,
We're neither up nor down.
