Subject: Send for Kaiser
From: GUEST,Kim Waters

I'm trying to locate a song from ca. 1945 called, I believe, "Send for Kaiser". It is about construction tycoon Henry J. Kaiser and refers to his ability to build things and do things that, "can't be done". Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's hard to believe that anyone would be looking for this song. Yes, I know of the song. I recently was looking at sheet music for it. Unfortunately, I didn't write down the lyric but the title is, "Call for Henry Kaiser".

The sheet music I saw is in the University of California's Bancroft Library. I am in and out of there several times a year.

Why don't you caontact me directly and I will see if I can help you get a photocopy or a recording if that is of more interest?

The song is actually CALL HENRY KAISER, words and music by Stephen McNeil, 1944. "Introduced by the Harmonettes." This information is from the catalog of Bancroft Library.

I have a special interest in this because the first car my father owned was a Henry J.

Hoist up the Emden sails!
See how the main sail sets!
Call for the Kaiser ashore, let me go home!
Lassen Sie mich nach Hause gehen!
Ich will nach Hause gehen!
Ich fuhle mich so zerschlagen, Ich will nach Hause gehen!

Call Henry Kaiser
Lyrics by Stephen McNeil


If you want the best construction,
And the speediest production
Do away with all obstruction
Jim Dixon is absolutely correct, it is "Call Henry Kaiser". (I get it mixed up with another famous cry from that period, "Call for Philip Morris.

Here are the lyrics. I have since managed to find a recording.


Call Henry Kaiser

If you want to build a byway
Or A subway or a highway
Or even build a skyway

He'll tackle a job others give up
And make it fast and stronger
But if the job's impossible, It takes a little longer

He can build a dam or fountain
He's a man that you can count on
If you want to move a mountain
Call Henry Kaiser
Go on and call Henry Kaiser.
