KEEP THE HOME FIRES BURNING Keep the home 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.
Songs of World War I
GOOD LUCK TO THE BOYS OF THE ALLIES Good luck to the boys of the allies Just cheer them on their way The Union Jack their proud of While fighting day by day When the band plays that tune called Tipperary There’s joy right in their eyes God Save Our Gracious King Good Luck to the boys of the Allies IT’S A LONG WAY TO TIPPERARY It’s a long way to Tipperary It’s a long way to go It’s a long way to Tipperary To the sweetest girl I know Goodbye Picadilly Farewell Leicester Square It’s a long way to Tipperary But my hearts right there! PACK UP YOUR TROUBLES Private Perks is a funny little codger with a smile a funny smile Five feet none, he’s an artful little dodger with a smile a funny smile Flush or broke, he’ll have his little joke He can’t be suppress’d All the other fellows have to grin When he gets this off his chest: (shout) Hi! 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 the style What’s the use of worrying It never was worthwhile So, pack up your troubles in you’re old kit bag and smile, smile, smile. NOW IS THE HOUR Now is the hour, when we must say goodbye Soon you’ll be sailing far across the sea While you’re away, O then remember me, When you return you’ll find me waiting here
