55 DAYS AT PEKING Theme from the film "55 Days At Peking" (1963) (Dimitri Tiomkin / Paul Francis Webster) The Brothers Four - 1963 Richard Chamberlain - 1963 Kenny Ball & His Jazzmen - 1963 Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom Bom-bom, bom-bom-bom Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom The year was Nineteen-Hundred T'is worth remembering The men who lived through Fifty-five days at Peking T'was called the Boxer Insurrection A bloody, Oriental war Against all nations Of the Diplomatic Corps The flags of France and Britain How they fluttered in the breeze The Italian and the Russian And the flag of the Japanese Then came the sound of bugles The rolling drums of fury And the streets of Peking Were as empty as a tomb Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom Bom-bom, bom-bom-bom Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom The Empress of all China Gave the signal to begin Let the foreign devils Be driven from Peking They stormed the French Ligation They attacked with shot and shell And they came in blood red blouses Screaming "Sha Shou" as they fell The drums have long been muffled The bugles cease to ring But through the ages You can hear them echoing Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom Bom-bom, bom-bom-bom Fifty-five days at Peking Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom Bom-bom, bom-bom-bom Fifty-five days at Peking Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom Bom-bom-bom.........FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2005)
