ROAD TO HAPPINESS (Soundtrack) Songs from the film "Road To Happiness" (1942) Starring John Boles, Roscoe Karns, Mona Barrie and Billy Lee BOOTS (A poem by Rudyard Kipling) Performed by Sam Flint We're foot-slog-slog-slog-sloggin' over Africa Foot-foot-foot-foot-sloggin' over Africa Boots-boots-boots-boots-movin' up an' down again! There's no discharge in the war! Seven-six-eleven-five-nine-an'-twenty mile to-day Four-eleven-seventeen-thirty-two the day before Boots-boots-boots-boots-movin' up an' down again! There's no discharge in the war! Don't-don't-don't-don't-look at what's in front of you. Boots-boots-boots-boots-movin' up an' down again Men-men-men-men-men go mad with watchin' em, An' there's no discharge in the war! Try-try-try-try-to think o' something different Oh-my-God-keep-me from goin' lunatic! Boots-boots-boots-boots-movin' up an' down again! There's no discharge in the war! Count-count-count-count-the bullets in the bandoliers. If-your-eyes-drop-they will get atop o' you! Boots-boots-boots-boots-movin' up an' down again There's no discharge in the war! We-can-stick-out-'unger, thirst, an' weariness, But-not-not-not-not the chronic sight of 'em Boot-boots-boots-boots-movin' up an' down again, An' there's no discharge in the war! 'Taint-so-bad-by-day because o' company, But night-brings-long-strings-o' forty thousand million Boots-boots-boots-boots-movin' up an' down again. There's no discharge in the war! I-'ave-marched-six-weeks in 'Ell an' certify It-is-not-fire-devils, dark, or anything, But boots-boots-boots-boots-movin' up an' down again, An' there's no discharge in the war! ********** DANNY BOY (Traditional Scottish-Irish) Performed by John Boles Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling >From glen to glen, and down the mountain side The summer's gone, and all the roses falling 'Tis you must go and I must bide But come you back when summer's in the meadow Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow Then I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so ********** VISION FUGITIVE (Aria from Jules Massenet's 1881 Opera "Hérodiade") Performed by John Boles Divine volupté à mes regards promise! Espérance trop brève Qui viens bercer mon coeur et troubler ma raison... Ah! ne t'enfuis pas douce illusion! Vision fugitive et toujours poursuivie Ange mystérieux qui prend toute ma vie... Ah! c'est toi! que je veux voir Ô mon amour! ô mon espoir! Vision fugitive! c'est toi! Qui prends toute ma vie! Te presser dans mes bras! Sentir battre ton coeur D'une amoureuse ardeur! Puis mourir enlacés...dans une même ivresse Dans une même ivresse... Pour ces transports...pour cette flamme. Ah! sans remords et sans plainte Je donnerais mon âme Pour toi mon amour! mon espoir! Vision fugitive! c'est toi! Qui prends toute ma vie! Oui! c'est toi! mon amour! Toi, mon seul amour! mon espoir! ********** (Contributed by Mel Priddle - October 2007)
