Wikipedia has a list of Irving Berlin songs. It is incomplete (I impatiently wait for my copy of the Kimball "Complete Lyrics).
The first military revue written by Irving Berlin was "Yip, Yip, Yaphank," WW1. It had the song "Oh, How I Hate to Get Up in the Morning."
Berlin wrote the music for "God Bless America" for this show, but I understand that it was incompletely used at the time. I stand to be corrected on this.
