Oh mother! Look at us We won, we won!
We have been victorious and now there is no war
See? Medals shiny gold and valour suny bright
Oh mother, see us proud
Though we paid some cost; A little cost indeed-
Some sons a thousand score fallen, Some daughters a thousand score destroyed,
Some souls debased and lives thrown away But of course not only ours and of the enemy too-
It hasn't been much, Is it? Anything for you, my dearest beloved
Tell me, mother, It is not a dear cost that we paid For we have paid it for you Say it isn't, Please?
For if it has been dear, 'twill all go to hell
'Twill all go to hell.
