Here is the whole song:

THE SALVATION ARMY SONG


We're coming, we're coming our brave little band,
On the right side of temperance we now take our stand;
We don't use tobacco because we do think,
The use of tobacco will lead to drink.


CHORUS:
Away, away, with rum, by gum,
With rum, by gum, with rum, by gum,
Away, away, with rum, by gum,
It's the song of the Salvation Army.


We never eat fruit cake for fruit cake has rum,
And one little bite turns a man to a bum,
Oh can you imagine a sorrier sight,
Than a man eating fruit cake until he gets tight.

(chorus)

We never eat cookies they have yeast,
And one little bite turns a man to a beast,
Oh, can you imagine a man more disgraced,
Than a man in the gutter with crumbs on his face.


(chorus)

We never eat peaches for peaches ferment,
And a peach will ferment at the least little dent,
Oh can you imagine a thought more obscene,
Than a man getting tight on peaches and cream.

(chorus)

We never drink water, they put it in gin,
And one little sip and a man starts to grin,
Oh, can you imagine a sorrier plight,
Than a man drinking water until he gets tight?

(chorus)

We never drink tea, they mix it with wine,
And one little drink turns a man to a swine,
Oh,can you imagine a sorrier sight,
Than a man drinking tea and singing all night?
