The number 1 song in 1917 ~ CONFORCE Gage先生より

In going along with the last post I did about the last 100 years, today I think I will introduce a different type of song.

 

This song was from 1917 exactly 100 years ago.  At the time there was World War 1 happening, so life was a lot different.

 

You can listen to the song by clicking this link below.

Nora Bayes – Over There

This song is definitely a blast from the past, from a much different era than today.  Now can you imagine what the number one song will be in 2117?

 

OVER THERE

By Nora Bayes

 

 

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 her boy’s in line.

 

Johnnie get your gun, get you gun, get your gun, Johnnie show the Hun, you’re a Son-of-a-Gun, Hoist the flag and let her fly Like true heros do or die Pack your little kit, show your grit, do your bit, Soldiers to the ranks from the towns and the tanks, Make your Mother proud of you and to Liberty be true.

 

Over There, Over There Send the word, send the word, Over There That the Yanks are coming, The Yanks are coming, The drums rum tumming everywhere So prepare, Say a Prayer Send the word, Send the word to beware We’ll be over, we’re coming over. And we won’t be back till it’s over over there!

 

Over There, Over There Send the word, send the word, Over There That the Yanks are coming, The Yanks are coming, The drums rum tumming everywhere So prepare, Say a Prayer Send the word, Send the word to beware We’ll be over, we’re coming over.
