World War One songs

"Good-bye, Ma; Good-bye, Pa;
Goodbye, mule with the old hee-haw.
I may not know what the war's about
But I'll be, by gosh, I'll soon find out.
And oh, my sweetheart, don't you fear
I'll get you a king for a souvenir
I'll get you a Turk and the Kaiser, too,
And that's about all one feller can do.

When this lousy war is over,
No more soldiering for me,
When I get my civvy clothes on,
Oh how happy I shall be,
No more church parades on Sunday,
No more putting in for leave,
I will miss the Sergeant-Major,
How he'll miss me how he'll grieve.

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
