Though our country will never make war We've a reason that's worth marching for not for battle our banner unfurls but for girls, girls, girls, girls, girls. When we're marching we never retreat for we're cherging a foe that is sweet! But we're caught in the swirls of the enemy's curls and surrender to girls, girls, girls.
REPRISE VERSE (Not heard in the film)
Ruby lips taste like claret when they're pressing close to mine. What a flavor! I compare it to tha oldest vintage wine. I don't need a book of verses or a jug beneath the bough, and my memory rehearses not a moment so sweet as now.
Let us gaze in the wine while it's wet. Let's do things that we'll live to regreat. Let me dance till the restaurant whirls with the girls, girls, girls, girls, girls! When there's wine and there's women and song it is wrong not to do something wrong! When you do something wrong, you must do something right, and I'm doing all right tonight.
