Back in 1889 a regiment was born
And her mounted troopers
rode In sunshine and in storm
From Bechuanaland to the mighty Zambezi
Known by many names she was the BSAP

Come ye troopers of old
Where're ye may be
Drink a century toast to the BSAP
And we'll sing a couple of bars
Of the good old Kum-A-Kye song
To the BSAP and the regiment lives on!

She has served in war and peace
Had glory and has bled
A multisided role in the land where she was bred
A guardian of the country she was always there
Like the trooper that was moulded on the Morris Depot Square

Come ye troopers of old
Where're ye may be
Drink a century toast to the BSAP
And we'll sing a couple of bars
of the good old Kum-A-Kye song
To the BSAP and the regiment lives on!

Old black boots be our chum
Reservists may grow old
And far too many have done their last patrol
Last bobby on his beat, last Airman in the sky
Last 🅱️Girl on the radio, the legend cannot die

Come ye troopers of old
Where're ye may be
Drink a century toast to the BSAP
And we'll sing a couple of bars
Of the good old Kum-A-Kye song
To the BSAP and the regiment lives on!

At the outposts of the world
The regiment lives on
In the land of the Silver Fern, Australia and Hong Kong
In Britain's misty isles, beneath American skies
In Africa, her birthplace, the spirit never dies

Come ye troopers of old
Where're ye may be
Drink a century toast to the BSAP
And we'll sing a couple of bars
Of the good old Kum-A-Kye song
To the BSAP and the regiment lives on!
To the BSAP and the regiment lives on!
To the BSAP and the regiment lives on!
