FLANDERS TOMMY
Mick Ryan

Come, come to Flanders, Tommy, come, come to France
Kitchener commands us Tommy, come join the dance.
Come, come beat the drum lad, hear the music play
Come, son take up your gun and march, march away
Come, son take up your gun and march, march away

The girls will wave and cheer us Tommy, come, come to France
The enemy will fear us Tommy, come join the dance.
Come, come beat the drum lad, hear the music play
Come, son take up your gun and march, march away
Come, son take up your gun and march, march away

They'll march us and brass band us Tommy, come, come to France
Who knows where they'll land us Tommy, come join the dance.
Come, come beat the drum lad, hear the music play
Come, son take up your gun and march, march away
Come, son take up your gun and march, march away

Bayonets and barbed wire Tommy, come, come to France
Trenches and shell fire Tommy, come join the dance.
Come, come beat the drum lad, hear the music play
Come, son take up your gun and march, march away
Come, son take up your gun and march, march away

We heard this by a group called Hen Party and Marion learned it from them. I believe One of the group took part in the show written by Mick Ryan so they should be fairly close to the original.
