YOUR DADDY WAS A SOLDIER (Ruth Wallis) Ruth Wallis - 1947 In olden days when mothers sang a lullaby She would sigh rock-a-bye baby Nowadays it's different, and I'll show you how She serenades her baby now..... Your Daddy was a soldier And your Mommy was a WAC They crossed the sea together And together they came back Your Daddy was so handsome And he looked real sharp and proud And all the fellas whistled When your Mommy went to town Your Daddy was a hero and your Mommy was to proud So baby hold your head up Hold it high above the crowd Now you'll be in clover There's a better world in store Your Daddy was a soldier Your Mommy was a WAC And you were worth fighting for Climb upon my knee, there is more to tell It ended well, wait 'til you hear Though you'll never read it in your history Still you ought to know, my dear..... Your Daddy tried manoeuvres But your Mommy called retreat Your Daddy never faltered For the victory would be sweet The position was strategic It required a well-skilled hand So on D+23 Day Your Daddy marched into no-man's land Your Mommy lit the fuse And your Daddy popped the gun And that, my little darling Is how it all was done Now, you'll be in clover There's a better world in store Your Daddy was a soldier Your Mommy was a WAC And that's how we won the war (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2012)
