Transcription

Who knows?
Life’s golden chalice
Which now we hold so tight
May, ere another night
Fall from fingertips
And crash to pieces
Ere our lips
Can taste again
The happiness that glows
When Youth’s love flows
We, who so much give
Tonight
Our birthright
Is to LIVE!!!

Come Tom, Dick and Jack
Fly out of that flack
There’s waiting for you
The eggs and the bacon
And the hearts of the WAFFS
At the home station
