Jack Dunn, son of a gun, over in France today Keeps fit, doing his bit, up to his eyes in clay Each night, after a fight, to pass the time along He's got a little gramophone that plays this song Take me back to dear old Blighty Put me on the train for London Town Take me over there, drop me anywhere Birmingham, Leeds or Manchester, well, I don't care I should love to see my best girl Cuddling up again we soon shall be (Whoa!) Tiddley-iddley-ighty, hurry me home to Blighty Blighty is the place for me Bill Spry started to fly up in an aeroplane In France, taking a chance, wished he was down again Poor Bill, feeling so ill, yelled out to Pilot Brown "Steady a bit, ya fool, you're turning me upside down" Take me back to dear old Blighty Put me on the train for London Town Take me over there, drop me anywhere Birmingham, Leeds or Manchester, well, I don't care I should love to see my best girl Cuddling up again we soon shall be (Whoa!) Tiddley-iddley-ighty, hurry me home to Blighty Blighty is the place for me Jock Lee, having his tea, says to his pal MacFayne "Look, chum, apple and plum, it's apple and plum again Same stuff, isn't it rough, fed up with it I am Oh, for a pot of Aunt Eliza's raspberry jam" Take me back to dear old Blighty Put me on the train for London Town Take me over there, drop me anywhere Birmingham, Leeds or Manchester, well, I don't care I should love to see my best girl Cuddling up again we soon shall be (Whoa!) Tiddley-iddley-ighty, hurry me home to Blighty Blighty is the place for me One day, Mickey O'Shea stood in a trench somewhere So brave, having a shave and trying to part his hair Mick yells, dodging the shells and lumps of dynamite "Talk of the Crystal Palace on a firework night" Take me back to dear old Blighty Put me on the train for London Town Take me over there, drop me anywhere Birmingham, Leeds or Manchester, well, I don't care I should love to see my best girl Cuddling up again we soon shall be (Whoa!) Tiddley-iddley-ighty, hurry me home to Blighty Blighty is the place for me (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2017)
