by jingo

The crowds in English music halls sing the original jingoistic chorus, making plain their support for Disraeli's firm stand in 1878 against Russia:

'We don't want to fight, but by jingo if we do, We've got the ships, we've got the men, we've got the money too, We've fought the Bear before, and while Britons shall be true, The Russians shall not have Constantinople.'
