BALLAD OF RODGER YOUNG, THE Frank Loesser first performed during World War II in March 1945 No, they've got no time for glory in the Infantry. No, they've got no use for praises loudly sung, But in every soldier's heart in all the Infantry Shines the name, shines the name of Rodger Young. Shines the name--Rodger Young! Fought and died for the men he marched among. To the everlasting glory of the Infantry Lives the story of Private Rodger Young. Caught in ambush lay a company of riflemen-- Just grenades against machine guns in the gloom-- Caught in ambush till this one of twenty riflemen Volunteered, volunteered to meet his doom. Volunteered, Rodger Young! Fought and died for the men he marched among. In the everlasting annals of the Infantry Glows the last deed of Private Rodger Young. It was he who drew the fire of the enemy That a company of men might live to fight; And before the deadly fire of the enemy Stood the man, stood the man we hail tonight. On the island of New Georgia in the Solomons, Stands a simple wooden cross alone to tell That beneath the silent coral of the Solomons, Sleeps a man, sleeps a man remembered well. Sleeps a man, Rodger Young, Fought and died for the men he marched among. In the everlasting spirit of the Infantry Breathes the spirit of Private Rodger Young. No, they've got no time for glory in the Infantry, No, they've got no use for praises loudly sung, But in every soldier's heart in all the Infantry Shines the name, shines the name of Rodger Young. Shines the name--Rodger Young! Fought and died for the men he marched among. To the everlasting glory of the Infantry Lives the story of Private Rodger Young.
