NO LIKA DA WAR (Holloway / Nesham) Stanley Holloway - 1941 (with piano accompaniment by W.T. Best) In Italy when Mussolini called for men He make-a me go To fight-a the foe He say with a grin, you're sure to win and home again That liar Benito, whenever we meet-o I make-a the Blitz, they pick-a the bits Up in the next street-o No wanta no start-a the war No wanta no fight-a the war No wanta to leave my home in sunny Italy I missa the macarone I missa the ice cream cone I missa my little Rosalie No lika the barbed wire No lika the spit-a-da-fire No lika the great big guy from Australie No lika the ping No lika the boom No lika the whoosh No lika the clunk Oh, take-a me back to sunny Italy Io da laniero di qualità Hey, who? Says the Duce (pronounced "juice") to Mrs. Musso You can buy another trouseau I go to make some war among the sheik With my trusty battagliare (battaglieri ?) And with Mary from the dairy I'll be home again inside a couple-a-week And the populo di Roma They draw up a nice diploma For to give to the Italians by-and-by But the Abyssinian army They drive us nearly barmy Singing el kaladdy Haile Selassie Coming through the rye Says Iosta, "No surrender" An' 'e speak-a very tender He say "Stick it boys and then I'm sure we win" But the British in the tanks They attack us on the flanks And you're a fatter man than I am, Gunga Din They search every nook and cranny For our Marshall, Graziani And we have to pin a note upon the door We wouldn't tell a fibby 'ere You can search all over Lybia Grazie, and 'e doesn't liby 'ere anymore No wanta no start-a the war No wanta no fight-a the war No wanta to leave my home in sunny Italy I missa the macarone I missa the ice cream cone I missa my little Rosalie No lika the barbed wire No lika the spit-a-da-fire No lika the great big guy from Australie No lika badia No lika Tobruk No lika saloon No lika b-book Oh, take-a me back to sunny Italy Oh, take-a me back to sunny Italy Viva !
