PORCUPINE'S WAR SONG
Tune "It's a Long Way to Tipp" [i.e. Tipperary]
Words written by Eugene P. Colombo
Up in dear old Porcupine the spirit
of the war
Has touched the hearts of our best
men and they are good and sore.
Now you all know that you must go
To beat this camp for P.E.P.
And you can bet your happed life
The boys bring home a R.E.P.
It's a long way to Tipperary,
And our best pals must part,
But we'll give them the best of credit
'Cause they've show a good, true
They can rought it and never worry,
And I'm sure it won't be long
When Rule Britannia, Britannia Rules
They'll be eating dinner with the
And singing this song.
Stop and think it over, and I'm sure
There isn't one
That wouldn't fight for Britain if
The time would have to come:
We've got to show the Germans that
We have the real back-bone.
And you're the boys to make the
And bring the bacon home
Chorus - as above.
