Thread Name: WWI Trench songs
Subject: Lyr Add: ISN'T IT GRAND, BOYS^^^
JcF: That is a great song! It's titled "ISN'T IT GRAND, BOYS" I have a version by the Clancy Brothers and I sing it at Reenactments (After hours)

Look at the Coffin,
With Golden handles.
Isn't it Grand boys, to be bloody well dead?
Let's not have a sniffle,
Let's have a bloody great cry.
And always remember the longer you live,
The sooner you'll bloody well die.

Look at the Flowers,
All bloody withered,...

Look at the mourners,
Bloody great hypocrites...

Look at the widow,
Bloody great female,...

The third through the last lines get added to each verse. It's a marvelous song. Kindest regards, Neil
