HAIL ! HAIL ! THE GANG'S ALL HERE ! (Words by D.A. Estron / Music by Theodore Morse and Arthur Sullivan, 1917) Irving Kaufman - 1943 Fred Astaire A gang of good fellows are we, (are we,) Are we, (are we,) are we, (are we,) With never a worry you see, (you see,) You see, (you see,) you see, (you see,) We laugh and joke, we sing and smoke, And live life merrily; No matter the weather When we get together We have a jubilee. [Chorus] We love one another we do, (we do,) We do, (we do,) we do, (we do,) With brotherly love and it's true, (it's true,) It's true, (it's true,) it's true, (it's true,) It's one for all, the big and small, It's always me for you; No matter the weather When we get together We drink a toast for two. [Chorus] When out for a good time we go, (we go,) We go, (we go,) we go, (we go,) There nothing we do that is slow, (is slow,) Is slow, (is slow,) is slow, (is slow,) Of joy we get our share you bet, The gang will tell you so; No matter the weather When we get together We sing this song you know: [Chorus] ORIGINAL CHORUS: Hail! Hail! the gang's all here, What the deuce do we care, What the deuce do we care, Hail! Hail! we're full of cheer, What the deuce do we care Bill! OTHER WELL KNOWN VERSIONS: Hail, hail, the gang's all here, Never mind the weather, here we are together; Hail, hail, the gang's all here, Sure we're glad that you're here, too! Hail, hail, the gang's all here, We're a bunch of live ones, not a single dead one; Hail, hail, the gang's all here, Sure I'm glad that I'm here, too! (Contributed by Andy & Mogg - 2002)
