I've promised to put something

Into this little book

And something for to write about

I've tried all day to look

I've looked at Segt. Dickenson

With the bandage round his head

Until he made me dream of him

I dream't that he was dead

   _______________

And then there's one named  ... 

Who from Somerset does hale

Since he's had his operation

He has looked a trifle pale

We have one man from the Hampshires

Who to Dardenelles was sent

But now he keeps us comp'ny

For his fingers slightly bent

And then there's me from Oldham

Ah won't they all be glad

When they say the last of me

[next page]

Co'd I have the nightmare bad

There's Humpage who sleeps next to me

Who used to sing and dance

And my word, he's gone through something
