We Stopped Them At The Marne
(It's To ---- With Germany)

[Verse 1]
A khaki lad had just returned from fighting 'cross the sea,
His kit upon his back, With a gun and a haver sack,
After seeing all the sights along the thoroughfare,
He stopped beside a pacifistic meeting in the Square,

When the speaker finished all the rot he had to say,
The khaki lad began to shout this way;

[Chorus]
Hey! "We stopped them at the Marne,
We beat them on the Aisne,
We gave them H--- at Neuve Chappelle,
and here we are, yes, here we are again, (Gor' blime me)

The French stopped them at Verdun,
and you can't forget Ypres,
Now America's here to help us, so,
It's up the pole with Germany."

[Verse 2]
The women have done wonders in the big munition shops,
They've helped the wounded through, and you would do it too,
When you see the laddies smiling all the whole day long,
You'll realize that fighting for the right is never wrong,

So brighten up your faces, put your troubles on the rack,
And cheer the boys along 'till they come back:

[Chorus 2]
Hey! "We stopped them at the Marne,
We beat them on the Aisne,
We gave them H--- at Neuve Chappelle,
and here we are, yes, here we are again, (Gor' blime me)

The French stopped them at Verdun,
and you can't forget Ypres,
Now America's here to help us, so,
It's to H--- with Germany." -y."
