Are We Downhearted? No! No! No!

Melody - Will Donaldson, 1917; Seq. by Eric Stedman

Ray Sherwood, 1917

Cheer up, cheer up, cheer up ev'ryone,
Said a soldier boy one day,
Cheer up, cheer up, let us have some fun,
Before it's time to go away,
Ev'ry body sing,
Let your voices ring,
We'll march away with a song.
Are we downhearted? No! No! No!
We are ready to go, go go.
Goodbye sweetheart, for a little while,
Goodbye mother, let me see you smile
Soon the bugle will blow, blow, blow.
Duty calls, we know
And we'll hang the Kaiser to a Sour apple tree,
Are we downhearted? No! No! No!
2. Dearie, dearie, now's the time to dance,
Soon the band will start to play.
Dearie, dearie, over there in France,
I won't forget this happy day,
Tho' we go to fight,
Still our hearts are light,
Cheer up, it's time to be gay.
