Roses of Picardy

... and the roses will die with the summertime
and our paths may be far apart
but there's one rose that dies not in Picardy
'tis the rose that I keep in my heart ...

1. Oh it's a lovely war

... 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 just as heavy as lead
but we never get up till the sergeant brings our breakfast up to bed ...

4. Would you rather be a colonel with an eagle on your shoulder

... I'd rather be a private than a colonel in the army
A private has more fun
When his day's work is done
and when he goes on hikes,
in every town he strikes
girls discover him
and just smother him
with things he likes ...

5. My dream of the big parade

... millions of cooties crawling around
pieces of shrapnel
pieces of shell
many a cross
where somebody fell
fighting and fighting a horrible war
and God only knows what you're fighting it for ...

They fly so high
nearly reach the sky
then like my dreams
they fade and die ...

13. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try to look up the page

But if it requires Facebook registration, it'll remain opaque to me, because I won't register there

34. Gethsemane

The Garden called Gethsemane
In Picardy it was,
And there the people came to see
The English soldiers pass.
We used to pass - we used to pass
Or halt, as it might be,
And ship our masks in case of gas
Beyond Gethsemane ...
