SPITFIRE SONG, THE
(Horace Maybray King)
as recorded by
Joe Loss & his Orchestra
(vocal - Sam Browne)
There's no need to take cover
When you hear these engines sound,
British planes are in the skyways,
On their daily vigil bound.
We'll make fun of their number,
Write our name upon the wing;
When the planes are flying over
You will hear all Britain sing?
There's music in the sky,
Don't you hear the engines humming?
Prepare to do or die,
The Britsh planes are coming!
Spitfire or Defiant,
So give a rousing cheer,
The British planes are here!
