ANY BONDS TODAY? (Irving Berlin) Barry Wood & The Lyn Murray Singers - 1941 Kay Kyser & His Orch. (vocal: Harry, Ginny, Jack & Max) - 1941 Andrews Sisters (with Vic Schoen's Orch.) - 1941 Jimmy Dorsey & His Orch. (vocal: Helen O'Connell & Bob Eberly) - 1941 Mel Blanc & Arthur Q. Bryan (as the voices of Bugs Bunny & Elmer Fudd in the cartoon "Any Bonds Today?") - 1942 As recorded by BARRY WOOD: The tall man with the high hat And the whiskers on his chin Will soon be knocking at your door And you oughta be in The tall man with the high hat Will be coming down your way Get your savings out When you hear him shout Any bonds today? Any bonds today? Bonds of freedom, that's what I'm selling Any bonds today? Scrape up the most you can Here comes the freedom man Asking you to buy a share of freedom today Any stamps today? We'll be blest if we all invest In the U.S.A. Here comes the freedom man Can't make tomorrow's plan Not unless you buy a share of freedom today (First came the Czechs and then came the Poles) And then the Norwegians with three million souls (Then came the Dutch, the Belgians and France) Then all of the Balkans with hardly a chance It's all in the book if only you look It's there if you read the text They fell ev'ry one at the point of a gun (America musn't be next) (Any bonds today?) (Bonds of freedom, that's what I'm selling) (Any bonds today?) (Scrape up the most you can) (Here comes the freedom man) (Asking you to buy a share of freedom today) Any bonds today? All you give will be spent to live in the Yankee way Scrape up the most you can Here comes the freedom man Asking you to buy a share of freedom today (Orchestral Interlude) Any bonds today? All you give will be spent to live in the Yankee way Scrape up the most you can Here comes the freedom man Asking you to buy a share of freedom today Any bonds today? (Any bonds today?) (Any bonds today?) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2013) ******************** ANY BONDS TODAY (Revised 'Victory' Lyrics) (Irving Berlin) Barry Wood (with Mark Warnow's Orch.) - 1945 The tall man with the high hat And the whiskers on his chin Will soon be knockin' at your door And you better be in The tall man with the high hat Will be comin' down your way Get your savings out When you hear him shout Any bonds today Any bonds today? You remember when first we shouted Any bonds today? Four years have gone since then Now we are back again Asking you to buy a share of freedom today Any bonds today? Much has happened since first we cried Any bonds today? Our job is almost done But we'd have never won If you hadn't bought a share of freedom that day We started slow, but through Anzio We licked Mussolini, with two more to go We crossed the sea and from Normandy We marched into Berlin and licked Germany The Japs, they were tough, but not tough enough They soon hollered quits, and how But there's more to do, both for me and for you America mustn't stop now Any bonds today? All those millions who'll be civilians Are on their way? We mustn't let them down They'll soon be back in town Asking have you bought that share of freedom today (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2013)
