Chris de Burgh - This song for you
Tekst en muziek: Chris de Burgh
(1975)






Hello darling, this is the army
I’ve just got the time to write
Today we attack, there’s no turning back
The boys, they’re all ready for the fight



Yes, I’m well, but this place is like hell
They call it Passchendaele
In nineteen seventeen the war must be ending
The General said, this attack will not fail



So, I’m writing down this simple, little melody
When you play it my love, think of me
We’ll be together in this song for you



And it goes
Laa la la, lala la la, lalalala la la
Laa la la, lalalala, lalalala la lala la la
Sing it darling
Laa la la, lala la la, lalalala la la
Laa la la, lalalala, lalalala la lala la la la



They got old Bill and the Sergeant is still out there
Wounded in some shellhole
They say this war will end all wars
Oh God, I really hope it will



Oh, how’s old England, are they still singing
Those songs that we loved to sing
When all this is over, we’ll go sailing in Dover
Catching fish like we used to with a string



Oh, I miss you, I miss you, I miss you so
If they get me, my love, you will know
We’ll always be together in this song for you



And it goes
Lalala la la, lalala la, lalalala la la
Lalala la la, lalala la, la lalala la
I have to go now
Mmm mm mm, mmm mm mm, lalalala la la



Take care of yourself my love
