D-Day

And, as we all know,
a rumour (false) started in Italy
that Lady Astor had referred to the boys
of the C.M.F. as D-Day dodgers--

        7. Dear Lady Astor, you think you know a lot,
           Standing on a platform and talking tommy-rot.
           You, England's sweetheart and its pride,
           We think your mouth's too bleeding wide
           That's from your D-Day Dodgers---in far off Italy.

                "Ballad of the D-Day Dodgers,"

Tune: Lili Marlene, Norbert Schultze, 1937; Text: Anon., "Collected for the Lili Marleen Club of Glasgow" by Seumas Mor Maceanruig (Hamish Henderson), Ballads of World War II, Glasgow, Caledonian Press, c.1952. Hamish denied writing it, though; he simply grouped, edited and organized it into a coherent song.
