The Old Home Guard

Lyrics from Bedknobs and Broomsticks
Composed by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman


They're sailing for England
Oh, what a shame
Someone is after our island again
We'll let them have it
Oh, yes, we will
But maybe they won't want it when they get the bill

For we wrote the story of the old brigades
We know the glory of yesterday's parades
We'll sell them Blighty yard by yard
They'll buy it from the old home guard
They will!
They'll buy it from the old home guard

So call out the navy
Call out the ranks
Call out the air force
Call out the tanks
From the cliffs of Dover call up the gulls
And don't forget the loyal territorials

But who's sticking in here?
Who will defend
Every inch of England
No matter what they send?
Who's standing firm in our own front yard?
The soldiers of the old home guard
That's who!
The soldiers of the old home guard

For we wrote the story of the old brigades
We know the glory of yesterday's parades
Who's standing firm in our own front yard?
The soldiers of the old home guard
That's who!
The soldiers of the old home guard
