Joshua fit the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho,
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho, and the walls come tumbalin' down.
You may talk about your King of Gideon, you may talk about your King of Saul,
but there's none like good ol' Joshua at the battle of Jericho.
Joshua rode up to the walls of Jericho, and he cried out to his soldier band:
"Get those ram horns ready" Joshua said, "Cause the battle is in my hand."
All the people followed good ol' Joshua, with the trumpets made a mighty sound!
And the earth gave such an awful shake, that the walls came tumbalin' down.
