SECTION 1.

1. FALL IN AND FOLLOW ME

Fall in and follow me; fall in and follow me;
Come along and never mind the weather,
All together, stand on me boys;
I know the way to go, I'll take you for a spree :
You do as I do and you'll be right.
Fall in and follow me.


2. I'LL MAKE A MAN OF YOU

On Sunday I walk out with a Sailor,
On Monday I'm taken by a Tar,
On Tuesday I'm out with a baby Boy Scout.
On Wednesday a Hussar,
On Thursday I gang oot wi' a Scottie,
On Friday the Captain of the crew;
But on Saturday I'm willing,
If you'll only take a shilling,
To make a man of any one of you.

On Sunday I walk out with a Bo'sun,
On Monday A Rifleman in green,
On Tuesday I choose a Sub from the Blues,
On Wednesday a Marine,
On Thursday a Terrier from Tooting.
On Friday a Midshipman or two.
But on Saturday I'm willing,
If you'll only take a shilling,
To make a man of any one of you.








I don't want to be a Soldier:
I don't want to go to war;
I want to stay at home, around the pubs to roam,
And live upon the earnings of a lady typist;
I don't want a bayonet up my belly,
I don't want my pleasure shot away,
I'd sooner stay in England,
In merrie, merrie England,
And see the palace ladies all the day.




3. WIDOWS ARE WONDERFUL

Boys who're fond of flirting are cautious,
,.. So they say;
A game they're quite expert in
Is kiss and run away;
Girls who blush and dimple are timid as a rose,
But a widow's not so simple for she always knows.
CHORUS:
Widows are wonderful: you must admit they're wise,
They've got the eyes, always hand you some surprise;
Widows are marvellous ; they've got the kind of way,
If they're short or tall
The men are bound to fall, that's all.
Widows are dangerous: they've had experience;
They're so many turtle doves.
Single girls are much too tame;
But a merry little widow knows the game;
She's beautiful she's marvellous 1
It's wonderful the way she loves.







4. I'VE GOT RINGS ON MY FINGERS

Sure, I've got rings on my fingers and bells on my toes,
Elephants to ride upon, my little Irish Rose,
So come to your Nabob on next St. Patrick's Day,
Be Mistress Mumbo, Jumbo, Jiddy-bo Jay, O'Shea.

5. KEEP THE HOME FIRES BURNING

They were summoned from the hillside,
They were called in from the glen:
And the country found them ready
At the stirring call for men;
Let no tears add to their hardship
As the soldiers pass along,
And although your heart is breaking
Make it sing this cheery song:
CHORUS:
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.

6. OLD SOLDIERS NEVER DIE

Old soldiers never die;
Never die; never die;
Old soldiers never die;
They simply fade away.







SECTION 2




7. WE ARE FRED KARNO'S ARMY

We are Fred Karno's army, the ragtime infantry;
We cannot fight, we cannot shoot,
What bloody good are we.
And when we get to Berlin, the Kaiser he will cry:
Hoch I Hoch mein Gott What a bloody fine lot !
Are the ragtime infantry.




8. GOD SEND YOU BACK TO ME

God send you back to me, over the mighty sea,
Dearest, I want you near.
God dwells above you, knows how I love you,
He will send you back to me.




9. AT THE HALT ON THE LEFT

At the halt on the left, form platoon,
At the halt on the left, form platoon,
If the odd numbers don't mark time two paces,
How the hell can the rest form platoon.







10. HOLD YOUR HAND OUT, NAUGHTY BOY

Hold your hand out, naughty boy !
Hold your hand out, naughty boy !
Last night in the pale moonlight, I saw yer! I saw yer!
With a nice girl in the park,
You were strolling full of joy,
And you told her you'd never kissed a girl before,
Hold your hand out, naughty boy !




11. WHITER THAN THE WHITEWASH...

Whiter than the whitewash on the wall,
Whiter than the whitewash on the wall,
Wash me in the water
That you've washed your dirty daughter in,
And I shall be:
Whiter than the whitewash on the wall.




12. WHEN THE FIELDS ARE
WHITE WITH DAISIES

When the fields are white with daisies,
And the roses bloom again,
Let the love fame in your heart more brightly burn,
For I love you, sweetheart, only,
So remember when you're lonely,
When the fields are white with daisies I'll return.







13. I WAS A GOOD LITTLE GIRL
TILL I MET YOU

I was a good little girl till I met you;
You set my heart in a whirl, my poor head too,
Oh, how you told me the tale, you always do:
I was a good little girl till I met you.


14. ROAMIN' IN THE GLOAMIN'

Roamin' in the gloamin' on the bonny banks o' Clyde,
Roamin' in the gloamin' with a lassie by my side,
When the sun has gone to rest
That's the time that I love best,
Oh, it's lovely roamin' in the gloamin'



SECTION 3



15. GOOD-BYE-EE

Brother Bertie went away to do his bit the other day,
With a smile upon his lips, and his lieutenant's pips
Upon his shoulder bright and gay;
As the train moved out he said:
Remember me to all the birds."
Then he wagged his paw, and went away to war,
Shouting out these pathetic words:







CHORUS:
Good-bye, good-bye--ee,
Wipe the tear, baby dear, from your eye-ee:
Tho' it's hard to part I know,
I'll be tickled to death to go,
Don't cry-ee, don't sigh-ee !
There's a silver lining in the sky-ee,
Bon soir, old thing, cheer-i-o chin-chin,
Nah-poo, toodle-oo, good-bye-ee.


16. HAS ANYBODY HERE SEEN KELLY?

Has anybody here seen Kelly ?
K-E-DOUBLE-L-Y,
Has anybody here seen Kelly ?
Find him if you can.
He's as bad as old Antonio,
Left me on my own-i-o.
Has anybody here seen Kelly ?
Kelly from the Isle of Man.


17. EV'RY LITTLE WHILE

Ev'ry little while I feel so lonely,
Ev'ry little while I feel so blue,
I'm always dreaming, I'm always scheming,
Because I want you, and only you,
Ev'ry little while, my heart is aching,
Ev'ry little while I miss you smile,
And all the time I miss you,
I want to, want to, kiss you,
Ev'ry, ev'ry, ev'ry little while.








18. IT'S A LONG WAY TO TIPPERARY
Up to mighty London came an Irishman one day,
As the streets are paved with gold, sure every one
was gay,
Singing songs of Piccadilly, Strand and Leicester
Square,
Till Paddy got excited, then he shouted to them there :
CHORUS:
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,
Good-bye Piccadilly, farewell Leicester Square;
It's a long, long way to Tipperary, but my heart's
right there.

19. ROSES OF PICARDY
She is watching by the poplars,
Colinette with the sea-blue eyes,
She is watching, and longing, and waiting
Where the long, white roadway lies,
And a song stirs in the silence
As the wind in the boughs above.
She listens and starts, and trembles:
'Tis the first little song of love.
REFRAIN:
Roses are shining in Picardy
In the hush of the silvery dew,
Roses are flow'ring in Picardy,
But there's never a rose like you;
And the roses will die in the summertime
And our roads may be far apart,
But there's one rose that dies not in Picardy :
'Tis the rose that I keep in my heart.







20. I LIFT UP MY FINGER

I lift up my finger and I say,
Tweet, tweet, shush, shush,
Now, now- come, come.
I don't need to linger when I say,
Tweet, tweet, shush, shush,
Now, now- come, come.
When the baby screams and
scatters my dreams,
Do I start to sing or hum ? No !
I lift up my finger and I say,
Tweet, tweet, shush, shush,
Now, now come, come.





21. SISTER SUSIE'S SEWING SHIRTS

FOR SOLDIERS

Sister Susie's sewing shirts for soldiers,
Such skill at sewing shirts
Our shy young sister Susie shows,
Some soldiers send epistles,
Say they'd sooner sleep on thistles
Than the saucy, soft, short shirts for soldiers
Sister Susie sews.







SECTION 4


22. THE ARMY OF TO-DAY'S ALL RIGHT

So it's all right now,
There's no need to worry any more,
I saw the army wasn't strong,
Everything was wrong till the day I came along,
And then the band played, they all hoo-rayed,
The guns fired a salvo of delight,
I joined the army yesterday,
So the army of to-day's all right.


23. I WANT TO BE IN DIXIE
I want to be, I want to be,
I want to be way down in Dixie,
Where the hens are doggone glad to lay
Scrambled eggs in the new-mown hay,
Your ought to see, you ought to see,
You ought to see my home in Dixie;
You can tell the world I'm going to D-I-X -
I don't know how to spell it, but I'm going
You bet I'm goin'... to my home in Dixieland.


24. IF YOU WERE THE ONLY GIRL
IN THE WORLD
If you were the only girl in the world,
And I were the only boy,
Nothing else would matter in the world to-day,
We could go on loving in the same old way,








A garden of Eden just made for two,
With nothing to mar our joy,
I would say such wonderful things to you,
There would be such wonderful things to do,
If you were the only girl in the world,
And I were the only boy.


25. BRING BACK MY STIRRUPS

I've been in the trenches all day,
I've stuck it as long as I could,
I don't think I'll stick it much longer,
I'm up to my earholes in mud, mud, mud.
CHORUS:
Sergeant, sergeant, oh bring back my stirrups
to me, to me,
Sergeant, sergeant, oh bring back my stirrups
to me.
I've been in the saddle all day,
I've stuck it as long as I could,
I don't think I'll stick it much longer,
You see, I'm not made of wood, wood, wood.
CHORUS: Repeat.


26. OH, TO-MORROW NIGHT
But, oh, to-morrow night i Oh, to-morrow night !
What do I care what it's going to cost!
I'll make up for all I lost,
Oh, to-morrow night I I'll set the town alight;
I've been a good boy for two long years,
But oh, to-morrow night







27. IF THE SERGEANT DRINKS YOUR RUM
If the sergeant drinks your rum, never mind,
If the sergeant drinks your rum, never mind,
He's entitled to a tot,
But he drinks the bloody lot,
If the sergeant drinks your rum, never mind !

28. THERE'S A LONG, LONG TRAIL
Nights are growing very lonely, days are very long,
I'm growing weary, only listening for your song;
Old remembrances are thronging thro' my memory,
Thronging till it seems the world is full of dreams
Just to call you back to me.
REFRAIN:
There's a long, long trail a-winding
Into the land of my dreams,
Where the nightingales are singing,
And a white moon beams,
There's a long, long trail a-winding
Until my dreams all come true,
'Til the day when I'll be going down
That long, long trail with you.

29. AND WHEN I DIE
And when I die,
Don't bury me at all,
Just pickle my bones
In alcohol,
Put a bottle of rum
At my head and feet,
And then I know
My bones will keep.







SECTION 5


30. SOME SUNDAY MORNING

Some Sunday morning when the weather's fine,
The song birds singing, and the world in rhyme,
I've planned a wedding, dearie, just for you,
The news is spreading that I'll be there too,
(with bells on)
Dressed up in muslin what a bride you'll be,
Each Si and Hiram sure will envy me,
The village joker, I suppose,
Will hand us both some baby clothes,
Some Sunday morning when the wedding bells chime.


31. OH, YOU BEAUTIFUL DOLL

Oh, you beautiful doll! You great big beautiful doll!
Let me put my arms about you,
I could never live without you,
Oh, you beautiful doll You great big beautiful doll!
If you leave me now, how my heart will ache,
I want to hug you, but I fear you'll break,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, you beautiful doll!


32. THEY DIDN'T BELIEVE ME

And when I told them how beautiful you are,
They didn't believe me, they didn't believe me,
Your lips, your eyes, your cheeks, your hair







Are in a class beyond compare,
You're the loveliest girl that one could see,
And when I tell them,
And I'm certainly going to tell them,
That I'm the man whose wife some day you'll be,
They'll never believe me, they'll never believe me,
That from this great big world
You've chosen me.


33. TAKE ME BACK TO BLIGHTY

Take me back to dear old Blighty,
Put me on the train to London town,
Take me over there, drop me anywhere,
Liverpool, Leeds or Birmingham, well, I don't care,
I should love to see my best girl,
Cuddling up again we soon shall be, Whoa !
Tiddly-iddly-ighty, hurry me home to Blighty,
Blighty is the place for me.


34. HELLO! HELLO! WHO'S YOUR
LADY FRIEND ?

Hello! Hello! Who's your lady friend ?
Who's the little girlie by your side?
I've seen you with a girl or two,
Oh, oh, oh, I am surprised at you.
Hello Hello Stop your little game,
Don't you think your ways you ought to mend ?
It isn't the girl I saw you with at Brighton,
Who, who, who's your lady friend ?







35. MADEMOISELLE FROM ARMENTIERES

Mademoiselle from Armentieres, parlez vous,
Mademoiselle from Armentieres, parlez vous,
Mademoiselle from Armentieres,
Never been kissed for forty years,
Ninky, pinky, parlez vous.

The Jocks are having a hell of a time, parlez vous,
The Jocks are having a hell of a time, parlez vous,
The Jocks are having a hell of a time,
Kissing the W.A.A.C.s behind the line,
Ninky, pinky, parlez vous.




36. WHAT THE COLONEL TOLD

THE ADJUTANT

What was the tale the Colonel told the Adjutant ?
What did the Adjutant say to Major Brown?
What did the Major whisper to the Captain?
The Captain told the Subs to pass it down.
What did the Quartermaster tell the Sergeant?
The Sergeant told the Corp'ral it appears,
The Corp'ral told the Private, and the Private told
his girl,
Now she's looking for Mademoiselle from Armen-
tieres.


A







37. I'VE GOT THE SWEETEST
GIRL IN MARYLAND

I've got the sweetest girl in all the world
In Maryland,
She's got those big blue eyes just like the skies
In Maryland,
I've been so lonely, but now its only
One day more.
I'm glad I waited, she's worth waiting for,
'cause when she smiles at me, I seem to be
In Fairyland,
The most important thing, I've bought the ring
For Mary's hand,
I know she'll meet me at the Choo-choo,
With a How do you do ?" That's how I stand
In Maryland,




38. AS WE HAVE DONE BEFORE

Breaking out of barracks, breaking out of barracks,
Breaking out of barracks, as you have done before.

Fourteen days' detention, fourteen days' detention,
Fourteen days' detention, as you have done before.

Yes, Sir, we can do it, yes, Sir, we can do it,
Yes, Sir, we can do it, as we have done before.







SECTION 6

39. PACK UP YOUR TROUBLES

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 worth while,
So pack up your troubles in your old kit bag
And smile, smile, smile.


40. HERE WE ARE AGAIN

Here we are, here we are, here we are again,
There's Pat and Mac and Tommy and Jack and Joe,
When there's trouble brewing, when there's some-
thing doing,
Are we downhearted? No! Let 'em all come,
Here we are, here we are, here we are again,
We're all fine, and well, and feeling right as rain,
Never mind the weather, now then all together:
Hello Hello Here we are again !


41. ANOTHER LITTLE DRINK

Oh, there was a little hen, and she had a wooden leg,
The best little hen that laid an egg,
And she laid more eggs than any hen on the farm,
And another little drink wouldn't do us any harm.







CHORUS:
Another little drink, another little drink,
Another little drink wouldn't do us any harm.
Another little drink, another little drink,
Another little drink wouldn't do us any harm.



42. OH, IT'S A LOVELY WARI

Up to your waist in water, up to your eyes in slush,
Using the kind of language that makes the sergeant
blush,
Who wouldn't join the army, that't wot we all inquire,
Don't we pity the poor civilians sitting beside the fire.

CHORUS:
Oh, oh, oh, it's a lovely war!
Who wouldn't be a soldier, eh ?
Oh, it's a shame to take the pay,
As soon as Reveille has gone,
We feel as heavy as lead,
But we never get up till the sergeant
Brings our breakfast up to bed;
Oh, oh, oh, it's a lovely war!
What do we want with eggs and ham
When we've got plum and apple jam ?
Form fours, right turn,
How shall we spend the money we earn ?
Oh, oh, oh, it's a lovely war!







43. FIRST LOVE, LAST LOVE, BEST LOVE

The first love is the last love,
And it's the best love of all.
The new love is never the true love,
It's only you that makes me want you,
For the new love is not like the old love,
And so whatever may befall,
It doesn't matter where I chance to be,
No one else could be the same to me,
For my first love is my last love,
And that's the best love of all.


44. SHIP AHOY!

All the nice girls love a sailor,
All the nice girls love a tar,
For there's something about a sailor,
Well, you know what sailors are...
Bright and breezy, free and easy,
He's the ladies' pride and joy,
Falls in love with Kate and Jane,
Then he's off to sea again.
Ship ahoy Ship ahoy !


45. BACK HOME IN TENNESSEE

Back home in Tennessee, just try to picture me,
Right on my mother's knee, she thinks the world of me,
All I can think of to-night, is a field of snowy white,
Banjoes ringing, darkies singing, all the world seems
bright,







The roses 'round the door make me love mother more,
I'll see my sweetheart Flo' and friends I used to know,
Why, they'll be right there to meet me,
Just imagine how they'll greet me,
When I get back, when I get back,
To my home in Tennessee.


46. THE BELLS OF HELL

The bells of hell go tin-a-ling-a-ling,
For you, but not for me,
For me the angels sing-a-sing-a-sing,
They've got the goods for me,
Oh, Death, where is thy sting-a-sting-a-sting,
Oh, grave, thy victory?
The bells of hell go tin-a-ling-a-ling,
For you but not for me!


SECTION 7


47. LET THE GREAT BIG WORLD
KEEP TURNING

Let the great big world keep turning,
Never mind if I've got you,
For I only know that I want you so,
And there's no one else will do,
You have simply set me yearning,
And forever I'll be true,
Let the great big world keep turning round,
Now I've found some one like you.







48. WHEN YOU'RE ALL DRESSED UP

When you're all dressed up and no place to go,
Life seems weary, dreary and slow;
My heart has ached and bled with tears I've shed
When I've no place to go, unless I went to bed.
I've had a sad, sad life, and whenever I go
To that peaceful spot, where the violets grow,
Upon a nice white stone, will be written below:
He was all dressed up, but no place to go.




49. BELGIUM PUT THE KIBOSH
ON THE KAISER

Belgium put the kibosh on the Kaiser,
Europe took a stick and made him sore,
We shall shout with victory's joy,
Hold your hand out, naughty boy,
You must not play at soldiers any more.




50. BELLS OF ST. MARY'S

The bells of St. Mary's, ah, hear they are calling
The young loves, the true loves who come from
the sea,
And so my beloved, when red leaves are falling,
The love bells shall ring out, ring out for you and me.
Repeat.







51. YOU MADE ME LOVE YOU

You made me love you, I didn't want to do it,
I didn't want to do it ;
You made me want you, and all the time you knew it,
I guess you always knew it;
You made me happy sometimes, you made me glad,
But there were times, dear, you made me feel so bad,
You made me sigh, for I didn't want to tell you,
I didn't want to tell you:
I want some love' that's true, yes I do,
'deed I do, you know I do,
Give me, give me what I cry for,
You know you've got the brand of kisses that I die for,
You know you made me love you.




52. THE WEE CHOOSE 'MANG
THE HEATHER

There's a wee hoose 'mang the heather,
There's a wee hoose o'er the sea,
There's a lassie in the wee hoose,
Waiting patiently for me,
She's the picture of perfection,
Oh, I wouldn't tell a lee,
If you see her you would love her,
Just as, the same as me.







53. MY OLD KENTUCKY HOME

I've got a sneaky feeling 'round my heart
That I want to settle down,
I guess I'll pack my grip and take a trip
To a good old Southern town,
You can have your highbrow airs,
Just give me three good squares
With corn and 'lasses served by Rastus,
I'll be tickled to death to know I can stay right
there,
And I'll never care to roam
Come along with me and have a jubilee
In my old Kentucky home.



54. AROUND THE CORNER

Around the corner and under the tree
The Sergeant-Major said Come with me !"
I said Nay, nay !" I said No, no !"
But ever since I've been there once,
I always want to go
Around the corner and under the tree
The Sergeant-Major made love to me;
He kissed me once, he kissed me twice,
It was not just the thing to do,
But oh, it was nice!







SECTION 8


55. DIDN'T KNOW THE WAY TO

(He) I only know you looked divine,
I only longed to call you mine,
But I didn't know the way to...
(She) No, you didn't know the way to...
(He) And I didn't like to tell you.
(She) Will you tell me now?
(He) I thought of loving things to say,
I longed to show my loving way,
But I didn't know the way to ...
Didn't know the way to love you...
(She) Didn't know the way to love me ?
(He) Till you showed me how.


56. GILBERT THE FILBERT

I'm Gilbert the Filbert, the knut with a K ",
The pride of Piccadilly, the Blase rou6;
Oh Hades I the ladies who leave their woden huts
For Gilbert the Filbert, the Colonel of the Knuts.


57. WHERE THE BLACK-EYED
SUSANS GROW

I'm going back to the shack
Where the black-eyed Susans grow,J love 'em so,
They're all around on the ground,







Where I found the one I know, so long ago,
The honey bees all know I'm coming,
I seem to hear them softly humming:
You'll be losing your little Susan,
You'd better be getting busy, buzzin' around...
To stroll again down the lane
To the plain old rustic seat, will be a treat,
And I'll bring out the ring
For the finger of my sweet, she's mighty sweet,
And when I'm tied to the pride of the country-side
Maybe I'll introduce you to my corn-fed bride,
When I come back from the shack
Where the black-eyed Susans grow.


58. ROW ME ON THE RIVER, ROMEO

Row me on the river, Romeo,
Row me, Romeo do,
Take me on a tour to Twickenham,
First we'll train to Kew,
And you can guide me through the gorgeous gardens
Like Georgie used to do,
Then row me on the river, Romeo,
Row me over with you.


59. A BACHELOR GAY

At seventeen he falls in love quite madly
With eyes of tender blue;
At twenty-four he gets it rather badly
With eyes of different hue;








At thirty-five you'll see him flirting sadly
With two or three or more;
When he fancies he is past love,
It is then he meets his last love,
An he loves her as he's never loved before.




60. THE GOOD SHIP YACKI HICKI DOOLA

And then I snap my fingers, ha-ha-ha-ha!
And I snap the other one, ho-ho-ho-ho!
I don't care if the parents pine,
Once aboard the lugger and the girl is mine,
Then I set my sails and sail away,
No pirate e'er was cooler,
For where'er I go I fear no foe
On the good ship Yacki Hicki Doola.




61. I LOVE THAT DEAR OLD HOME
OF MINE

I love that dear old home of mine,
I love that simple country town,
I seem to hear that old place calling, calling,
Just come right down
To where the birds sing all day long,
And where the sun will always shine;
I love the waving corn where I was born,
I love that dear old home of mine.







62. I DO LIKE TO BE BESIDE
THE SEASIDE

Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside,
I do like to be beside the sea,
I do like to stroll along the prom, prom, prom,
While the brass bands play tiddley om-pom, pom,
I do like to be beside the the seaside,
I do like to be beside the sea,
There are lots of girls besides
That I'd like to be beside, beside the seaside,
Beside the sea.


63. SHE WAS POOR
She was poor but she was honest,
Victim of a rich man's whim,
First he loved her, then he left her,
Which was most unkind of him.
CHORUS:
It's the same the whole world over,
It's the poor wot gets the blime,
It's the rich wot gets the pleasure,
Ain't it all a bleeding shime.
Then the girl went up to London,
For to hide 'er ghastly shime;
There she met another squire,
And he pulled her down agine.
CHORUS:
It's the same the whole world over,
It's the poor wot gets the blime,
It's the rich wot gets the.pleasure,
Ain't it all a bleeding shime.







SECTION 9


64. GIVE ME A COSY CORNER

Give me a cosy little corner and an armchair for two,
Somewhere with somebody there, anywhere will do;
Give me an evening in the twilight, with a pale moon
above,
And I'll find a cosy little corner in the heart of the
girl I love.


65. SOME DAY I'LL MAKE YOU LOVE ME

Some day I'll make you love me,
Some day you'll call me dear,
You'll feel so lonely, you'll need me only,
Some day I know you'll want me near,
I know you can't forget met, I know for me
you'll sigh;
I'll make you miss me, I'll make you kiss me,
You'll want me bye and bye.


66. MAMMY'S LITTLE COAL-BLACK ROSE

You'd better dry your eyes, my little coal-black rose,
You'd better go to sleep and let those eyelids close,
'cause you're dark, don't start a-pining:
You're a cloud with a silver lining,
Tho' every old crow thinks his babe am as white as
snow,








Your dear old mammy knows you're mighty like a
rose,
And when the angels gave those kinky curls to you,
They put a sunbeam in your disposition too, that's
true,
And they made you dark, I s'pose,
cause your heart's so white, I guess, dear,
They'd none left for the rest, dear,
So don't you cry, don't you sigh,
cause you're mammy's little coal-black rose.





67. COAL-BLACK MAMMY O' MINE

'cause I'm goin', yes I'm goin',
With a love that's glowin',
To that coal-black mammy o' mine,
Not a cent, not a cent,
An' my clothes are only lent,
All the same she'll think I'm just fine,
How I've dreamed, how I've schemed,
An' at times it almost seemed
That the sun would never, never shine,
That's why I'm goin', yes I'm goin',
Mighty soon I'll be hulloin'
To that coal-black mammy o' mine.







68. ARE YOU FROM DIXIE?

Are you from Dixie, I said from Dixie,
Where the fields of cotton beckon to me,
I'm glad to see you, tell me how be you,
And the friends I'm longing to see.
If you're fromAlabama, Tennessee or Caroline,
Any place below the Mason Dixie line,
Then you're from Dixie. Hurrah for Dixie,
'cause I'm from Dixie too.


69. FANCY YOU FANCYING ME

Fancy you fancying me,
I can't tell what you can see,
For it seems like dreams, not reality,
That you should like my personality.
I can't quite figure it out,
I can't tell why it should be;
I can fancy anybody fancying you,
But fancy you fancying me.


70. OH JOHNNY! OH JOHNNY!

Oh Johnny, oh Johnny, how you can love !
Oh Johnny, oh Johnny, heavens above!
You make my poor heart jump with joy,
And when you're near I just sit still a minute
I'm so
Oh Johnny, oh Johnny, please tell me, dear,
What makes me love you so?







You're not handsome, it's true,
But when I look at you I just -
Oh Johnny, oh Johnny, oh I


71. MOLLY O'MORGAN

Molly O'Morgan with her little organ
Was dressed up in colours so gay,
Out in the streets every day,
Playing too-ra-ioorlioorali-oo-ra-li-ay.
Fellows who met her could never forget het,
She sets all their hearts in a whirl,
Molly O'Morgan with her little organ,
The Irish-Italian girl.



SECTION 1 0



72. GIVE ME THE MOONLIGHT

Give me the moonlight, give me the girl,
And leave the rest to me:
Give me a babbling brook, give me a shady nook,
Where no one can see;
Give me a bench for two where we can bill and coo,
And mine she's bound to be;
If there's any doubt, and they'd like to try me out,
Give me the moonlight, give me the girl,
And leave the rest to me.







73. WONDERFUL GIRL

When a wonderful girl meets a wonderful boy
There's going to .be some wonderful time.
Wonderful squeezing, wonderful sighs,
Wonderful glances from wonderful eyes,
In the shade of the trees they will cuddle and tease,
So long as two hearts beat in rhyme;
Then they both sit close to one another
Telling tales they wouldn't tell to Mother,
When a wonderful girl meets a wonderful boy
There's going to be some wonderful time.



74. GIVE ME YOUR SMILE

Give me your smile, the lovelight in your eyes,
Life could not hold a fairer paradise.
Give me the right to love you all the while;
My world forever, the sunshine of your smile.



75. KITTY

Kitty, Kitty, isn't it a pity
In the city you work so hard,
One, two, three, four, five or
Six, seven, eight, Gerard;
Kitty, Kitty, isn't it a pity
That you're wasting so much time
With your lips so close to the telephone,
When they might be close to mine.







76. SMILES

There are smiles that make us happy,
There are smiles that make us blue;
There are smiles that steal away the teardrops,
As the sunbeams steal away the dew;
There are smiles that have a tender meaning,
That eyes of love alone may see;
And the smiles that fill my life with sunshine
Are the smiles that you give to me.



77. YAAKI HULA HICKY DULA

I'm coming back to you, my Hula Lou,
Beside the sea at Waikiki you play for me,
And once again you'll sway my heart your way
With your Yaaki Hula Hicky Dula tune.


78. ALL THE WORLD WILL BE
JEALOUS OF ME

The roses all envy the bloom on your cheek,
And the sun even envies your smile;
The birds in the wild wood are stilled when you speak,
Their songs don't seem worth half the while;
The light in your eyes make the bright stars grow pale,
They're jealous as jealous can be,
But when one word or sigh
Tells them all you're mine,
All the world will be jealous of me.






36

79, .,SHE'S A LASSIE FROM LANCASHIRE
She's a lassie from Lancashire,
Just a lassie from Lancashire ;
She's the lassie that I love dear, oh so dear,
Tho' she dresses in clogs and shawl,
She's the prettiest of them all;
None could be fairer or rarer than Sarah,.
My lassie from Lancashire.


SECTION 11


80. IF I SHOULD PLANT A TINY
SEED OF LOVE
If I should plant a tiny seed of love
In the garden of your heart,
Would it grow to be a great big love some day,
Or would it die and fade away;
Would you care for it and tend it every day,
Till the time when all must part,
If I should plant a tiny seed of love
In the garden of your heart.


81. THREE HUNDRED AND SIXTY-FIVE
DAYS
Three hundred and sixty-five days
All go to make a year;
Three hundred and sixty-five days
In which to call her dear;
But always remember
From January to December







The girl that you worship and praise,
Allow me to tell you
She's able to sell you
Three hundred and sixty-five ways.

82. IN THE TWI-TWI-TWILIGHT
In the twi-twi-twilight,
Out in the beautiful twilight,
They all go out for a walk, walk, walk,
A quiet old spoon and a talk, talk, talk,
That's the time they long for,
Just before the night,
And many a grand little wedding is planned
In the twi-twi-twilight.

83. JOLLY GOOD LUCK TO THE GIRL
WHO LOVES A SOLDIER
Jolly good luck to the girl who loves a soldier;
Girls, have you been there ?
You know we military men
Always do our duty everywhere;
Jolly good luck to the girl who loves a soldier;
Real good boys are we,
Girls, if you like to love a soldier
You can all love me.

FINAL SECTION

84. LAND OF HOPE AND GLORY
Land of hope and glory, mother of the free,
How we can extol thee who are born of thee;
Wider still and wider shall thy bounds be set;








God, Who made thee mighty, make thee mightier yet;
God, Who made thee mighty, make thee mightier yet.


85. SOLDIERS OF THE KING

It's the soldiers of the king, my lads,
Who've been, my lads, who've seen, my lads,
In the fight for England's glory, my lads,
0, its world-wide glory let us sing,
And we say we've always won,
And when they ask us how it's done,
We'll proudly point to ev'ry one of England's
Soldiers of the king.


86. JUST A WEE DEOCH AN' DORIS

Just a wee Deoch an' Doris, just a wee yin that's a',
Just a wee Deoch an' Doris, before we gang awa':
There's a wee wifie waiting' in a wee but an' ben,
If yer can say it's a braw bricht moonlicht nicht
ye're a' richt ye ken.


87. AULD LANG SYNE

Should auld acquaintance be forgot and never
brought to min',
Should auld acquaintance be forgot and days
of auld lang syne;
CHORUS:
For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne,
We'll take a cup o' kindness yet for auld lang syne.
