Subject: RE: Lyr Req: WWII Song:'Come bury me out in Benghazi'
have you ever heard the tale of Benghazi where most of the fighting was done
It was there that a poor British Tommy was shot by an Italian gun
And as he lay here on his shoulder the blood from his wound flew red
and as he lay there on his shoulder these were the last words he said
you should never have love for a woman; no love for a woman have I
for they stick to you when you're winning and laugh at you when you are down
You can bury me out in the desert under the Libyan sun
you can bury me out in the desert my duty to ENGLAND is done
