Hank Snow - The Alphabet Song lyrics
Recorded by Hank Snow
Now friends if you will listen to me for just one minute please
I'll sing for you a little song from letters A to Z
And if per-chance that they don't rhyme don't lay the blame on me
Because it took me fourteen weeks to get from A to B
A is for the airforce boys with hearts so brave and true
B is for the battle and we're bound to win it through
C is for our country we're sure she'll always stand
D is for the duties that we pledge unto our land.
E that stands for England a nation brave and strong
F is for Fuhrer whose time now won't be long
G that stands for Goering who'll also meet his fate
H is for the heat that waits them in that fiery place.
I is for the iron and the steel that we can sling
J is for the justice boys that it will surely bring
K is for the kahki suits our soldier lads must wear
L that stands for lovers who wait their sweethearts over there.
M is for the many things that we must do without
N is for the navy boys that guard the deep blue route
O is for the officers that stand first in command
P is for the precious lads that form the army band.
Q is for the questioning that waits for every Hun
R is for the roundup time when its too late to run
S if for satisfaction we are sure to share
T is for the time when we will fly right over there.
U is for the Union Jack we're sure she'll never fall
V of course for Victory ahead for one and all
W stands for wayward boys who'll soon be homeward bound
X's stand for kisses that we will pass around.
Y is for them yellow brats, the laugh will be on them
Z is for the Zeigfreid Line that we won't need again
Of all the letters in this song the one that beats them all
Is V for Victory the letter that won't let the old flag fall.
