hush now darling
my mama said
your daddy's worried about the rents
one day you'll learn about the enemy
you have to fight so you'll be free
another day will dawn
our country will be strong
god knows we can't go wrong
be good, darling
do as we say
one day you'll learn to work for pay
and you will understand
that we are poor
you must work so you'll have more
another day will dawn
you will grow up so strong
we know you will belong
listen, father
there is no work
it seems that no one sees my worth
i have no money
to pay my rent
i cannot pay back what was lent
listen, mother
i lost my man
he was shot down in a foreign land
the captain cannot say what he died for
they only tell me we're at war
another time will come
you'll see what we have done
i only hope we may be forgiven
another rain will fall
and wash away us all
we used to stand so tall
we used to stand so tall
we used to stand so tall
