Tommy

 I went into a public-`ouse to get a pint o` beer,
 The publican `e up an` sez, `We serve no red-coats here.`
 The girls be`ind the bar they laughed an` giggled fit to die,
 I outs into the street again an` to myself sez I:
 
 0 it`s Tommy this, an` Tommy that, an` `Tommy, go away`;
 But it`s `Thank you. Mister Atkins,` when the band begins to play,
 The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play.
 0 it`s `Thank you. Mister Atkins,` when the band begins to play
 
 I went into a theatre as sober as could be,
 They gave a drunk civilian room, but `adn`t none for me;
 They sent me to the gallery or round the music-`alls,
 But when it comes to fightin`, Lord! they`ll shove me in the stalls!
 
 For it`s Tommy this, an` Tommy that, an` `Tommy, wait outside`;
 But it`s `Special train for Atkins` when the trooper`s on the tide,
 The troopship`s on the tide, my boys, the troopship`s on the tide,
 0 it`s `Special train for Atkins` when the trooper`s on the tide.
 
 Yes, makin` mock o` uniforms that guard you while you sleep
 Is cheaper than them uniforms, an` they`re starvation cheap;
 An` hustlin` drunken soldiers when they`re goin` large a bit
 Is five times better business than paradin` in full kit.
 
 Then it`s Tommy this, an` Tommy that, an` `Tommy, `ow`s yer soul?`
 But it`s `Thin red line of `eroes` when the drums begin to roll,
 The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll,
 0 it`s `Thin red line of `eroes` when the drums begin to roll.
 
 We aren`t no thin red `eroes, nor we aren`t no blackguards too,
 But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;
 An` if sometimes our conduck isn`t all your fancy paints:
 Why, single men in barricks don`t grow into plaster saints;
 
 While it`s Tommy this, an` Tommy that, an` `Tommy, fall be`ind,`
 But it`s `Please to walk in front, sir,` when there`s trouble in the wind,
 There`s trouble in the wind, my boys, there`s trouble in the wind,
 0 it`s `Please to walk in front, sir,` when there`s trouble in the wind.
 
 You talk o` better food for us, an` schools, an` fires, an` all:
 We`ll wait for extry rations if you treat us rational.
 Don`t mess about the cook-room slops, but prove it to our face
 The Widow`s Uniform is not the soldier-man`s disgrace.
 
 For it`s Tommy this, an` Tommy that, an` `Chuck him out, the brute!`
 But it`s `Saviour of `is country,` when the guns begin to shoot;
 Yes it`s Tommy this, an` Tommy that, an` anything you please;
 But Tommy ain`t a bloomin` fool--you bet that Tommy sees!
