Jingo In Webster's Dictionary

\Jin"go\, n.; pl. {Jingoes}. [Said to be a corruption of St. Gingoulph.] 1. A word used as a jocular oath. ``By the living jingo.'' --Goldsmith. 2. A statesman who pursues, or who favors, aggressive, domineering policy in foreign affairs. [Cant, Eng.] Note: This sense arose from a doggerel song which was popular during the Turco-Russian war of 1877 and 1878. The first two lines were as follows: 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.
