Anzac Asembly 2014


 World War 1 Medley:
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 cloud shining,
Turn the dark cloud inside out
'til the boys come home.

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 worthwhile
So, pack up your troubles
in your old kit bag
and smile, smile, smile.

It’s a long way to go
It’s a long way to Tipperary
to the sweetest girl I know
Goodbye Piccadilly
Farewell Leicester Square
It’s a long way to Tipperary
But my heart’s right there.
