THE GENERAL’S FAST ASLEEP (Jimmy Kennedy, Michael Carr) BBC Dance Orchestra, Dir. Henry Hall V. Dan Donovan Recorded 7th October 1935 Also recorded bby: Jay Wilbur & His Band, V. Vera Lynn Heinz Wehner Orchestra Right across the nursery floor Gallant soldiers dressed for war Drummer boys, and buglers grand Waiting the word of command Spick and span they stand But never a word of command You won’t see any big parade There won’t be any bugle played Sad to say no war today ‘Cos the general’s fast asleep Soldiers bold in a mighty row They’ve been told they're to fight the foe Sad to say no war today ‘Cos the general’s fast asleep The colonel’s mad, and the major blue The captain’s sad and the sergeant too Guess this war will have to keep It’s enough to make an army weep Look oh look at his curly head Time to take him away to bed Sad to say no war today ‘Cos the general’s fast asleep. (Transcribed from John Wright’s 78 RPM Record Collection by Bill Huntley - August 2013)
