Far Far from Ypres, I long to be

Where German sniper's cant snipe at me

Wet is my dugout,

Cold are my feet,

I am waiting for a Whizz bang,

to put me to sleep.


Though your heart may ache awhile

try a Nine

Though you face may lose its smile

try a Nine

For Rheumatics or insane, or concussion of the Brain

for every ache and pain

Try a nine.

The Army's Universal Pill. In France.
