                "Der Tag"

Here's to the day. when the whole thing is won

Here's to the day when the Kaiser is done

Here's to the day when we break his swelled dome

Here's to the day that we go marching home

         Long, restless nights

         With cursed cootie bites

          Things of the past!

         Hot baths at last!

          Real dollar bills!

          No more O.D. pills!

Chicken instead of our canned willie chow

All of the ice cream the law will allow!

Mess in the way we want to be messed!

Dress in the way we like to be dressed!

          Blouses + suits!

         No more salutes!

        A nice, comfy  bed.

         With a mattress instead

          Of some billet  floor

        That makes your ribs sore

The day when we no longer blister our heels

But know how a ride in the old subway

                                                          feels

The day we no longer parlez Francais

But speak once again in the good old home

                                     way.
