Grand Old Duke of York
Oh, the Grand Ol' Duke of York

He marched them up to the top of the hill and marched them down again

And when you're up, you're up
And when you're down, you're down
And when you're only half way up
You're neither up nor down

(Parents lift child up and down as the troops march up and down)
