Up to your waist in water, Up to your eyes in slush Using the kind of language, That makes the sergeant blush; Who wouldn't join the army? That's what we all inquire Don't we pity the poor civilians sitting around the fire. 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. Oh! Oh! Oh! it's a lovely war, What do we want with eggs and ham When we've got plum and apple jam? Form fours! Right turn! How shall we spend the money we earn? Oh! Oh! 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. Oh! Oh! Oh! it's a lovely war, What do we want with eggs and ham When we've got plum and apple jam? Form fours! Right turn! How shall we spend the money we earn? Oh! Oh! Oh! it's a lovely war.

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. Oh! Oh! Oh! it's a lovely war, What do we want with eggs and ham When we've got plum and apple jam? Form fours! Right turn! How shall we spend the money we earn? Oh! Oh! 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. Oh! Oh! Oh! it's a lovely war, What do we want with eggs and ham When we've got plum and apple jam? Form fours! Right turn! How shall we spend the money we earn? Oh! Oh! Oh! it's a lovely war.
