The shades of night, were falling fast

As by the C.R.O. their passed

A Waac who wore a strange device

A Motto, twas this good advice

                          "Carry On"

Her brow was sad, her brassard new

Looked very tame, all white + blue.

Her head it ached, her heart was wrung,

But still she either said or sung

                         "Carry On"

She left the street , the office sought

There munched the grapes her pay had bought

She heard a voice + turned with dread

Miss Bartelles popped in and said

                        "Carry On"

She seized her pen, upset the ink

She never even stopped to think

But turned with scornful air + said

"I suppose you'd say if you "Carry On" saw me dead

                           "Carry On"

She got C.B. she didn't care

She'd joined the Waacs to do + dare

As she left the camp we heard her say
