Subject: Lyr Add: COWARDS OVER PEARL HARBOR (Fred Rose)
It's a bit late to help OP with his/her request, but this seems to be one of the songs that was quoted. You can see an image of the record label, read the lyrics, and hear a recording all one one page, at AuthenticHistory.com. Also, there is an image of the sheet music, oddly enough, at a Japanese web site here:
COWARDS OVER PEARL HARBOR
Words and music by Fred Rose
As recorded by Denver Darling
Nashville: Acuff-Rose Publications, 1943
1. Pearl Harbor was calm one bright Sabbath morning,
But trouble and strife were lying in wait;
Then out of the sky came hawks of destruction,
Piloted by disciples of hate.
2. When bombs filed the air with all of their fury,
A story of shame was being unfurled.
A coward's desire fell down on Pearl Harbor,
Spreading the war all over the world.
3. Oh, some day they'll pay for all of their evil
When all of their schemes are proven in vain.
We'll never forget that day in Pearl Harbor,
And they'll regret it time and again.
4. Oh, what will they say to all of their children?
And how can they look themselves in the face?
Oh, what will they do that great judgment morning?
They must go down in mortal disgrace.
