George M. Cohan, 1917

Johnnie get your gun,
Get your gun, get your gun,
Take it on the run,
On the run, on the run,
Hear them calling you and me
Every son of liberty
Hurry right away
No delay go today
Make your daddy glad
To have had such a lad
Tell your sweetheart not to pine
To be proud their boy's in line.
Refrain (x2):
|: Over There :|
|: Send the word :|
Over There
That the Yanks are coming
The Yanks are coming
The drums rum-tuming everywhere.
So prepare say a pray'r
|: Send the word :|
To beware.
We'll be over
We're coming over
And we won't come back
Till it's over
Over There.
2. Johnnie get your gun,
Get your gun, get your gun,
Johnny show the Hun
You're a son of a gun
Hoist the flag and let her fly
Yankee Doodle do or die
Pack your little kit
Show your grit do your bit
Yankees to the ranks
From the towns and the tanks
Make your mother proud of you
And the old Red White and Blue.
Refrain:
