And When They Ask Us (From the soundtrack of Oh, What a Lovely War)
(Tune: 'They wouldn't believe me')
And when they ask us, how dangerous it was,
Oh, we'll never tell them, no, we'll never tell them
We spent our pay in some cafe,
And fought wild women night and day,
'Twas the cushiest job we ever had.
And when they ask us, and they're certainly going to ask us,
The reason why we didn't win the Croix de Guerre,
Oh, we'll never tell them, oh, we'll never tell them
There was a front, but damned if we knew where.
