Elphinstone Kist   Bairn Rhyme

World War II     by: Wheeler, Les

The War is ower - the War is passed
Hitler noo has breathed his last,
We’ve hin enuff o bombs an blast,
Gie's peace!

We’ll hae a party for the men,
That’s them that we micht see again:
But ithers winna mak it hame
Gie's peace!

The Provost an Bailies in a raw
Will watch the marchin sodjers braw:
But far’s aa the men they sent awa?
Gie’s peace!

We aa should be upon wir knees,
An ask the Gweed Lord if he'll please
Help us beat the Japanese!
An gie's peace!
