Study war no more
Lay down your arms
Study war no more
Lay em down, lay em down now
Study war no more
Lay down your arms
Study war no more
Newsreels rattle the nazi dread--
The able-bodied have shipped away--
Molly mcgee gets her tea-leaves read--
Youll be married in a month they say
«these leaves are crazy!
Look at this town--theres no men left!
Just frail old boys and babies
Talking to teacher in the treble clef.»
She plants her garden in the spring
She does the winter shovelling
Tokyo rose on the radio
She says shes leavin but she dont go Out of the blue--just passin thru
A young flight sergeant
On two weeks leave--
Says «molly mcgee--no one else will do!»
And seals the tea-leaf prophecy.
Oh these nights are strong and soft--
Private passions and secret storms
Nothin about him ticks her off
And he looks so cute in his uniform
She plants her garden in the spring
He does the winter shovelling
But summers just a sneeze
In a long-long-bad-winter cold
She says, «im leavin here"but she dont go
«sleep little darlin!
This is your happy home
Hiroshima cannot be pardoned!
Dont have kids when you get grown.
Because, this world is shattered
The wise are mourning--
The fools are joking
Oh--what does it matter?
The wash needs ironing
And the fire needs stoking.»
She plants her garden in the spring
He does the winter shovelling
The three of em laughing round the radio
She says «im leavin here"but she dont go She plants her garden in the spring
They do the winter shovelling
They sit up late and watch the
Johnny carson show
She says «im leavin here but she dont go
