No. 23 - Song - Meebles and Chorus - "I want to go to bye-bye."

MIDI File

Meebles: I've not had so much as a wink all the night,
It's distressing!
Chorus: It's distressing!
Meebles: And there wasn't a chance of retiring from sight
And undressing.
Chorus: And undressing.
Meebles: I've mud in my mouth and I've sand in my eyes,
I've yawned till I know I have swallowed some flies!
I want to go to bye-bye,
To rest my weary head!
And if nurse is a dear
She will call me next year;
Will somebody put me to bed?
Chorus: He wants to go to bye-bye,
To rest his weary head!
Meebles: Tuck me up in my crib
With my bottle and bib;
All: Will somebody put me/him to bed?
   
Meebles: It's a nuisance when Huns come around any day
And they fly low.
Chorus: And they fly low.
Meebles: And we let off maroons as a warning to say
When to lie low.
Chorus: When to lie low.
Meebles: So when the invaders appear in the skies
I'll go to my cellar and just close my eyes.
I want to go to bye-bye,
When Huns are overhead!
It is nice underground
With the barrels all round;
Will somebody put me to bed?
Chorus: He wants to go to bye-bye,
When Huns are overhead!
Meebles: You can signal "all clear"
When I've finished the beer;
All: Will somebody put me/him to bed?
   
Meebles: I've heard of some frivolous daughters of Eve
Known as flappers,
Chorus: Known as flappers,
Meebles: Who go for all officers home upon leave,
Even Sappers,
Chorus: Even Sappers,
Meebles: They take them to supper and ask them to dance...
The fellows would like to be "somewhere in France!"
They ought to go to bye-bye,
As older folks have said;
For the way that they chat
Will go through a tin hat;
Will somebody put them to bed?
Chorus: They ought to go to bye-bye,
As older folks have said.
Meebles: Their mammas would be thank'd
If they had to be spank'd
All: And somebody put them to bed!
