Abstract

1st verse:
America is in the war, and she is in to stay,
Her gallant boys have crossed the foam,
And now they're in the fray;
They'll fight untill the battle's won,
They'll fight with all their might;
America it is for thee, your cause is always right.

1st Chorus:
Victory! Victory! For that we've sent our boys across the sea;
Germany, will surely see,
Just like Joan of Arc we're fighting for Miss Liberty.
They'll get in to old Berlin,
And they'll show the Hun the fighting's just begun;
Our boys will never cease,
And they will not talk of peace,
Till they've reached the goal of victory.

2nd verse:
America will win this war,
She's sworn to do her best,
She'll prove to them that right is might,
When she's put to the test;
Ten million heroes standing by,
Awaiting duty's call;
America it is for thee,
They'll gladly give their all.

2nd Chorus:
Victory! Victory! For that we've sent our boys across the sea;
Germany, will surely see,
Just like Joan of Arc we're fighting for Miss Liberty.
They'll get in to old Berlin,
And they'll show the Hun the fighting's just begun;
In defending you and I,
They will fight and gladly die,
Till they've reached the goal of victory.
