THE MUSKETEERS From the Broadway Show "Animal Crackers" (1928) (Bert Kalmar / Harry Ruby) The Marx Brothers (Broadway Production) - 1928 Unless we tell you who we are, you'll never guess We're not Napoleon or da Vinci A lot of people think we are, but none the less We're not Napoleon or da Vinci We're not even Washington or Lincoln Jefferson or Alexander Carr You'd be wrong whoever you begin on So we'll let you in on who we are So stand by, unseen listeners We're four of the three musketeers We've been together for years Eenie, meenie, minee, (car horn) Four of the three musketeers We live by the sword, by the sea, by the way And we fight day and night And we sleep night and day My country 'tis of thee Land of the light wines and beers We're cheered from Cologne to Algiers Each time our motto appears It's one for all and two for five We're four of the three musketeers When the Queen needs recreation And she strolls along the path Where are we? Right by her side When she's filled with jubilation Or consumed with raging wrath Where are we? Right by her side We've sworn that we'd shield and protect her We're her guardsmen, true and tried When she gets up in the morning And she slips into her bath Where are we? Far from the old folks at home We're four of the three musketeers We've been together for years Athos, Pathos, Mathos, (car horn) Four of the three musketeers We fight for the King, for the Queen, for the Jack And we're first at the front When the front's at the back Three cheers for Richelieu Here's how we give him the cheers The foe trembles each time it hears This motto ring in its ears It's one for all and two for five We're four of the three musketeers (Contributed by Mel - November 2009)
