VERSE 01: Johnie get your gun, get your gun, get your gun,/Take it on the run, on the run, on the run;/Hear them calling you and me;/Ev’ry son of liberty./Hurry right away, no delay, go today,/Make your daddy glad, to have had such a lad,/Tell your sweetheart not to pine,/To be proud her boy’s in line.
CHORUS: Over there, over there./Send the word, send the word over there,/That the [boys/Yanks] are coming, the [boys/Yanks] are coming,/The drums rumtumming ev’rywhere./So prepare, say a pray’r,/Send the word, send the word to beware,/We’ll be over, we’re coming over,/And we won’t come back till it’s over over there.
VERSE 02: Johnie get your gun, get your gun, get your gun,/Johnie show the Hun you’re a son of a gun,/Hoist the flag and let her fly,/Like true heroes do or die./Pack your little kit, show your grit, do your bit,/Soldiers to the ranks from the towns and the tanks,/Make your mother proud of you,/And to liberty be true.
