Everybody Help the Boys Come Home

This song is by William & Versey Smith and appears on the compilation Broke, Black & Blue (1999).

Everybody help the boys come home
Everybody help the boys come home
Everybody help the boys come home
Do your best everybody when the war was on

Secretary writing just as fast as he can
Trying to get the news all over the land

Everybody help the boys come home
Everybody help the boys come home
Everybody help the boys come home
Do your best everybody when the war was on

Three cents on a letter we had to pay
Two cents on a pork chop come to pass
Eight cents on the dollar just to ride the train
Helpin' the gov'meant outta mighty strain

Everybody help the boys come home
Everybody help the boys come home
Everybody help the boys come home
Do your best everybody when the war was on

Taxes heavy but we must pay
Helpin' the boys over 'cross the sea
In the muddy water up to their knee
Facin' the Kaiser for you and me

Everybody help the boys come home
Everybody help the boys come home
Everybody help the boys come home
Do your best everybody when the war was on

Taxes heavy but we must pay
Helpin' the boys over 'cross the sea
In the muddy water up to their knee
Facin' the Kaiser for you and me

Kaiser seen he didn't have no friends
Come all the world just on the job
Runnin' to England's just what I mean
Went to sea in this submarine

Everybody help the boys come home
Everybody help the boys come home
Everybody help the boys come home
Do your best everybody when the war was on

President Wilson was on his throne
Makin' laws for everyone
Raisin' the rich and he raisin' the poor
Raisin' every tax on everybody's door

Everybody help the boys come home
Everybody help the boys come home
Everybody help the boys come home
Do your best everybody when the war was on

President of England, King of France
Meetin' the Kaiser now face to face
All we wanted was a ? of a chance
We got to go to Germany just to settle the game

Everybody help the boys come home
Everybody help the boys come home
Everybody help the boys come home
Do your best everybody when the war was on
