ALEXANDRA lyrics - The Guns And The Drums

ALEXANDRA
"The Guns And The Drums"

The guns and drums
And drums and guns, hurroo, hurroo,
With your guns and drums
And drums and guns, hurroo, hurroo,
With your guns and drums
And drums and guns the enemy nearly slew you
Oh my darling dear you look so queer,
Oh Johnny, I hardly knew you.

Where are your legs that used to run,
Hurroo, hurroo,
Where are your legs that used to run,
Hurroo, hurroo,
Where are your legs that used to run
When first you went to carry your gun,
Oh, I feel your dancin' days are done,
Oh, Johnny, I hardly knew you.

You haven't a leg, you haven't an arm,
Hurroo, hurroo,
You haven't a leg, you haven't an arm,
Hurroo, hurroo,
You haven't an arm, you haven't a leg,
You're an eyeless boneless chickenless egg,
You'll have to be put with a bowl to beg,
Oh, Johnny, I'm swearing to you.
(Oh, Johnny, I hardly knew you)

They're rolling out their guns again,
Hurroo, hurroo,
They're rolling out their guns again,
Hurroo, hurroo,
They're rolling out their guns again,
But they'll never will take our sons again,
No, they'll never will take our sons again,
Oh, Johnny I'm swearing to you.

With your guns and drums
And drums and guns, hurroo, hurroo,
With your guns and drums
And drums and guns, hurroo, hurroo,
With your guns and drums
And drums and guns the enemy nearly slew you,
Oh my darling dear you look so queer,
Oh Johnny, I hardly knew you.
