Remembered Today:

Songs my Granny taught me Pt.1


Recommended Posts

In the faint hope that someone else might know something about them I am putting on the forum the lyrics of some songs my Gran used to sing that were definitely from the Great War and taught to her by her brothers who were in the Army at the time.

First a deleightful vignette of domestic life in the trenches:-

Where do flies go in the wintertime,

Do they go to gay Paree?

When they've finished buzzing round our eggs and ham,

When they've finished settling on our Ticklers Jam,

Do they fly like Swallows every year to some distant far off clime,

Tell me, tell me,

Where do flies go in the wintertime?
