"I'll show them the meaning right away of

                                          "Carry On"

If a Yank invites me to dine or sup

And freely partake of the gladdening cup

And asks if he dare, steal one little kiss

I'll say "Sir you know that the Waacs'

                 motto is "Carry On"

She blued her pay + came in late

The sentry refused to open the gate

But she looked so sweet + free from guile

That he unbarred the portal + said with a 

                     smile "Carry On"

She thought as she sped with flying feet

Not all in vain was that smile so sweet

But when she hears of my deed so ill

There is no doubt that the U.A. Will

                                  "Carry On"

On spring did trully her spirit grieve

Never a rumour could she hear of leave

The doctor said, "you're a wreck tis true

But as that's nothing to do with you

                          "Carry On"

She died at last of a broken heart

She could no longer play her part
