The General's Fast Asleep

Chanson anglaise (Military fox trot)– The General's Fast Asleep – Vera Lynn – 1935

Vera Lynn



Pour le commentaire voir : Le général dort debout
You won't see any big parade
There won't be any bugle playing
Sad to say, no war today, 'cause the General's fast asleep

Soldiers broiled in a mighty row 
They've been told they're to fight the foe 
Sad to say, no war today, 'cause the General's fast asleep

The colonel's mad and the major's blue
The captain's sad and the sergeant too 
Guess this war will a-have to keep
It's enough to make an army weep

Look oh look at the curly head
Time to take him away to bed 
Sad to say, no war today, 'cause the General's fast asleep

It seems an awful shame
That his victory won't go down to fame
Sandman's here to dim the light
Little general, good night

Scritta da Jimmy Kennedy e Michael Carr e interpretata da The Rhythm Rascals, uno dei nomi d'arte di Jay Wilbur e la sua orchestra. Nei crediti stranamente non compare Vera Lynn, che era in una delle sue primissime apparizioni e che sfondò solo qualche anno più tardi, nel 1939, con We'll Meet Again.
