Work, Boys, Work (And Be Contented)

When you're in your overalls working as engineers
You can't get the 'glad eye' from the saucy little dears
But although you're pining for to cuddle something nice
Prove that you are virtuous by sticking to your vice Work, boys, work and be contented
Don't knock off to go and chase the girls
Stick to work just like a leach
And you can have a harem each
When we beat the Turks and bust the DardanellesNow some of you have worked as you have never worked bеfore
Some of you have workеd for a year or maybe more
Pining for your beano in the good old waggonette
But stick it lads and you shall have your beano don't forgetWork, boys, work and be contented
Day and night and save up all your tin
For to strike it ain't no use
Help to 'cook the Kaiser's goose'
Then we'll let you have your beano in BerlinNow don't forget to win the war that millions must be spent
Don't forget the war loan at four and half percent
Put your money in it lads, walk to save the fares
When the Kaiser's stoney broke, we'll all be millionairesWork, boys, work and be contented
Don't waste your money it's a crime
When you find you're out of debt and you've an empty bassinet
You can fill it up by working overtimeI went out to Crosse and Blackwells late the other night
Saw the girls were a-making jam for those who have to fight
I said 'Ah now, now that's the stuff to fill a Tommy's tums.'
This is what I shouted as they pelted me with plumsWork, girls, work and be contented
Making jam for those out at the war
Fill 'em up with raspberry
And when they come home you'll see
Why, they'll stick to you as they've never stuck beforeWork, girls, work and be contented
Making jam for those out at the war
Fill 'em up with raspberry
And when they come home you'll see
Why, they'll stick to you as they've never stuck before
