The British Library has the sheet music, described thus:

Words and music by William Jerome & John F Mahoney
London: Herman Darewski Music Publishing Co., ©1918

Jerome & Mahoney were Americans. The sheet music was also published in New York by Leo Feist, Inc.

Sometimes the title is given as EVERY DAY WILL BE SUNDAY....

I found this quote in a book: "At the table d'hote with Lola they will serve us Coca Cola..."

Jack Mahoney recorded it on the Okeh label in 1918.
Louis Winsch also recorded it on the Pathe label around 1919.

I also found recordings of a gospel song called EVERY DAY WILL BE SUNDAY (BY AND BY). Maybe the Jerome-Mahoney song was a parody?

But I couldn't find any lyrics. Too bad Anne didn't post them.
