VERSE 01: I’ve got to leave my Caroline,/A little card said it was time,/And Mister Local Board said I must drop all things and fall in line,/Now I don’t want sympathy,/But I want the world to see,/They surely called up on the right man, when they called on me.
CHORUS: I’m goin’ to fight my way right back to Carolina,/I’m going to run ev’ry Hun, ev’ry son of a gun, I see,/Depend on me,/’Cause I’m in this thing to win,/And I know that it’s no sin,/To grab a little German,/Any little Herman and carve my name on him./And I am satisfied that Carolina loves me,/I left my heart with her in Dixieland,/She’ll understand,/That I may come back with something missin’/But that won’t keep us from huggin’ and kissin’,/When I fight my way right back to my Caroline
VERSE 02: This little trip across the sea,/To Picadilly and Paree,/Is just the thing that I’ve been longing for,/It’s just what suited me,/Now the girls of France are fine,/’Cause they’re smiling all the time,/But not a single one I found,/Compares with Caroline.
