AIR -- O, what has caused this great commotion.

WHAT has caused this great commotion, motion,motion,
The country through?
It is the ball a rolling on
For Col. Fremont and Dayton, too,
For Col. Fremont and Dayton, too,
And with them we'll beat old Buchan!
We should, will and can, --
And with them we'll beat old Buchan!

Fremont first raised the American flag, flag, flag,
On Pacific coast,
And "engineerred" free mining there,
While our Dayton was in the Senate true --
Then hurrah for Fremont and Dayton, too,
And with them we'll beat old Buchan!
We should, will, and can, --
And with them we'll beat old Buchan!
