Songs during the War

It's a long way to Tipperrary
Words and Music:
Jack Judge and Harry Williams

It's a long way to Tipperrary, It's a long way to go;
It's a long way to Tipperrary To the sweetest girl I know!
Goodbye Piccadilly, Farewell, Leicester Square,
It's a long, long way to Tipperrary, But my heart's right there!

Pack Up Your Troubles
Parole: George Asaf
Musica: Felix Powell

Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag,
And smile, smile, smile.
While you've a lucifer to light your fag,
Smile, boys, that's the style.
What's the use of worrying,
It never was worthwhile, so
Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag,
And smile, smile, smile.

"Keep the Home Fires Burning" (Till the Boys Come Home)

Parole: Lena Gilbert Ford
Musica: Ivor Novello

Keep the Homes fires burning
While your hearts are yearning,
Though your lads are far away
They dream of home,
There's a silver lining
Through the dark clouds shining,
Turn the dark clouds inside out,
Till the boys come Home.

"A Bicycle Built For Two"
Words and Music:
Henry Dacre (1892)

Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do.
I'm half crazy all for the love of you.
It won't be a stylish marriage,
I can't afford a carriage;
But you'll look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built
per due.

Henry, Henry, this is my answer true:
I'm not crazy over the likes of you.
If you can't afford a carriage,
Forget about the marriage;
I won't be jammed,
I won't be crammed
On a bicycle built for two.

White Cliffs of Dover 1942
-- Nat Burton
There'll be bluebirds over the white cliffs of Dover
Tomorrow, just you wait and see
There'll be love and laughter and peace ever after
Tomorrow when the world is free

(The shepherd will tend his sheep)
(The valley will bloom again)
And Jimmy will go to sleep
In his own little room again

There'll be bluebirds over the white cliffs of Dover
Tomorrow, just you wait and see

<instrumental interlude>

There'll be bluebirds over the white cliffs of Dover
Tomorrow, just you wait…and see

Ci incontreremo di nuovo
Words & Music by:
Ross Parker & Hughie Charles
1939
Ci incontreremo di nuovo
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know we'll meet again some sunny day

Keep smilin' through
Just like you always do
Till the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away

So will you please say hello
To the folks that I know
Tell them I won't be long
They'll be happy to know
That as you saw me go
I was singing this song

Ci incontreremo di nuovo
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know we'll meet again some sunny day

Run Rabbit Run
Words & Music by: Noel Gay and Ralph Butler.

Run Rabbit Run was a popular song during World War II, especially after Flanagan and Allen changed the lyrics to poke fun at the Germans (eg. Run Adolf, Run Adolf, Run, Run, Run........)

On the farm, every Friday
On the farm, it's rabbit pie day.
So, every Friday that ever comes along,
I get up early and sing this little song

Run rabbit - run rabbit -
Correre! Correre! Correre!
Run rabbit - run rabbit -
Correre! Correre! Correre!
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Goes the farmer's gun.
Run, rabbit, run, rabbit, run.
Run rabbit - run rabbit -
Correre! Correre! Correre!
Don't give the farmer his fun!
Fun! Fun!
He'll get by without his rabbit pie
So run rabbit - run rabbit -
Correre! Correre! Correre!

Run Adolf, Run Adolf, Run, Run, Run,
Now that the fun has begun, gun, gun;
P'raps you'll just allow us to explain,
What we did once, - we can do again.
We're making shells by the ton, ton, ton.
We've got the men and the mon, mon, mon.
Poor old soul, - you'll need a rabbit-hole, -
So, run Adolf, run Adolf, run, run, run.
