ANCHORS AWEIGH (Zimmerman) fr film "Anchors Away" 1944 Charles A Zimmerman (m) Royal Lovell (l) Alfred Hart Miles (l) Frank Sinatra Gene Kelly and vocal group w orch cond by Jose Iturbi We hate to leave, we hate to leave, But when they give you leave, you gotta leave! Oh, our hearts bleed for all of you guys aboard, But right now sympathy's a thing we can't afford! We hate to leave, we hate to leave, We hate to leave, we hate to leave, Without you guys along we'll grieve and grieve! But we'll be back, yes we'll be back before we're even missed, And tell you guys about the count, the dames that we have kissed! We'll even say, believe us say, We really hate to leave! You know, Clarence, I think it's awful us goin' ashore, And leavin' these guys sittin' around in their undershirts! And we gotta go and meet those beautiful dames in their soft silk dresses! Yeah, but duty is duty, and an order is an order! No, I know some guys who'd get a thrill out of meeting a gorgeous gal every night! We hate to leave, we hate to leave, But when they give you leave, you gotta leave! No more pinup gals that we so enjoy! Tonight therefore we've got to meet the real McCoy! We hate to leave, we hate to leave, But we'll be back before the anchors heave! We wanna stay, we wanna stay, our hearts are with the ship! But the admiral made us take this leave, he beat us with a whip! We'll even say, ha-ha ha-ha, believe us say, ha-ha ha-ha, We really - hate to leave! (Contributed by Peter Akers - July 2009)
