VERSE 01: Johnnie 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 Yanks are coming the 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: Johnnie get your gun, get your gun, get your gun/Johnny show the Hun you’re a son of a gun/Hoist the flag and let her fly/Yankee Doodle do or die/Pack your little kit show your grit do your bit/Yankees to the ranks from the towns and the tanks/Make your mother proud of you/And the old Red White and Blue.
