No. 25 - Song - Nora and Chorus

MIDI File

Nora: The boys go marching down the street,
With a tramp, tramp, tramp,
And a tramp, tramp, tramp —
You hear the tune of a thousand feet,
It's a tramp, tramp, tramp,
And a tramp, tramp, tramp —
The girls look on with eager eye,
There are some who smile and some who sigh,
As the boys go gallantly marching by,
With a tramp, tramp, tramp, tramp, tramp!
But a brighter day's in store,
When the boys come home once more!
Oh, girls, happy you will be
When your soldier lads you see.
Hearts will all be full of glee
When the boys come home once more!
Soon will victory be won
And their duty bravely done,
Just think what a lot of fun,
When the boys come home once more!
Chorus: Oh, girls, happy you will be
When your soldier lads you see.
Hearts will all be full of glee
When the boys come home once more!
Soon will victory be won
And their duty bravely done,
Just think what a lot of fun,
When the boys come home once more!
   
Nora: The boys go forward to the fight,
With a tramp, tramp, tramp,
And a tramp, tramp, tramp —
Their hopes are high and their hearts are light,
It's a tramp, tramp, tramp,
And a tramp, tramp, tramp —
And far away they hear a call:
"Good luck go with you, one and all!"
And again their echoing footsteps fall,
With a tramp, tramp, tramp, tramp, tramp!
But a glorious day's in store,
When the boys come home once more!
Oh, girls, happy you will be
When your soldier lads you see.
Hearts will all be full of glee
When the boys come home once more!
Ah, girls! Only tell me this--
Is there nothing that you miss,
Aren't you longing for a kiss
When the boys come home once more?
Chorus: Oh, girls, happy you will be
When your soldier lads you see.
Hearts will all be full of glee
When the boys come home once more!
Ah, girls! Only tell me this--
Is there nothing that you miss,
Aren't you longing for a kiss
When the boys come home once more?
   
Nora: The boys will come back bright and brave,
With a tramp, tramp, tramp,
And a tramp, tramp, tramp--
With bells that ring and with flags that wave
a tramp, tramp, tramp,
And a tramp, tramp, tramp--
And all the windows will be gay
With girls dressed out for holiday,
And the flowers will rain on the soldiers' way,
As they tramp, tramp, tramp, tramp, tramp!
But a glorious day's in store,
When the boys come home once more!
Oh, girls, happy you will be
When your soldier lads you see.
Hearts will all be full of glee
When the boys come home once more!
Arms that never were disgraced
You will gladly see replaced
Each arm round about a waist
When the boys come home once more.
Chorus: Oh, girls, happy you will be
When your soldier lads you see.
Hearts will all be full of glee
When the boys come home once more!
Arms that never were disgraced
You will gladly see replaced
Each arm round about a waist
When the boys come home once more.
