VERSE 01: Last night in my dreams I could picture the sad dreary land 'cross the sea./Heartbroken mothers sisters and brothers in homes that need sympathy/For the lads and the dads who are sleeping where they fell in battle far away//In our own U.S.A. we forget day by day/But one little word seems to say.CHORUS: P means the millions of Papa's who'll never see their loved ones anymore/E is for Every broken hearted mother who waits by a cottage door/A is for All the Heroes/C for their Country, theirs alone/E means to Everybody this spells Peace/So let's call the soldiers homeVERSE 02: A million dead heroes are sleeping in the shadows of Alsace Lorraine/Mem'ries are keeping mothers are weeping for daddy's return in vain/There's a girlie alone with her sorrow for the sweetheart who kiss'd her "Good-Bye"/And the children each day when they're kneeling to pray then each little lip seems to sigh.
