"The Blue Devils Of France" lyrics - IRVING BERLIN

"The Blue Devils Of France"

I've seen many diff'rent pictures
Of the devil down below
And he doesn't stand a show
With a certain devil I know
Let me introduce you to him
You'll be happy when I do
He's a devil dressed in blue
And a soldier through and through

High up in the Alpine Mountains
Are the Blue Devils
Where the rain of shrapnel fountains
Scar the Blue Devils

With their glistening sabers
Amid the shot and shell
They visit their Austrian neighbors
And give them H-E-double-L

Strong and active, most attractive
Are the Blue Devils
They came here the Liberty Loan to advance

We entertained them with the best
And now they've gone back to the trenches to rest
Those Devils, the Blue Devils of France
