The Bees Go Humming Along

THE (CAISSONS GO ROLLING) Bees Go Humming Along
(Adapted for Eaglem from the song by Major (General) Edmund L. Gruber) (1907)

Original version recorded by:
Band of the Grenadier Guards; Bob Crosby & His Orch.;
André Kostelanetz; Gene Krupa & His Orch.;
Regimental Band of the Coldstream Guards;
Washington Men's Camerata.

Over hill, over dale
As we hit the dusty trail,
And the (Caissons go rolling) bees go humming along.
In and out, hear them shout,
Counter march and right about,
And the (Caissons go rolling) bees go humming along.

Then it's hi! hi! hee!
In the field (artillery) of artistry,
Shout out your numbers loud and strong,
For where e'er you go,
You will always know
That the (Caissons go rolling) bees go humming along.

In the storm, in the night,
(Action) Exit left or (action) exit right
See those (Caissons go rolling) bees go humming along.

Limber front, limber rear,
Prepare to mount your (cannoneer) Pentax gear
And those (Caissons go rolling) bees go humming along.

Then it's hi! hi! hee!
In the field (artillery) of artistry,
Shout out your numbers loud and strong,
For where e'er you go,
You will always know
That the (Caissons go rolling) bees go humming along.

Was it high, was it low,
Where the hell did that one go?
As those (Caissons go rolling) bees go humming along
Was it left, was it right,
Now we won't get home tonight
And those (Caissons go rolling) bees go humming along.

Then it's hi! hi! hee!
In the field (artillery) of artistry,
Shout out your numbers loud and strong,
For where e'er you go,
You will always know
That the (Caissons go rolling) bees go humming along.
That the (Caissons go rolling) bees go humming along.
That the (Caissons go rolling) bees go humming along.

You will notice the substituted words follow the bracketed originals. My immediate thought was that you used this march as your reference for your Title. Sousa wrote well over 100 military marches. This is the Official Song of the US Army. Perhaps your heard it during your Australian military service and subconsciously recalled it. The version with the original words sung follows:

No our marches were either Australian written or British. My favourite of course was Waltzing Matilda.

The Sousaphone (a Tuba) is called after him. I checked. In 1911 his band performed in Sydney and Melbourne which then was the national capital. When a bunch of us get together we usually sing old war songs. Waltzing Matilda is among them. We also do a mean rendition of The Wild Colonial Boy.
