Info: LYRICS:
1. Brother Bertie went away
To do his bit the other day
With a smile on his lips
And his Lieutenant's pips
Upon his shoulder bright and gay.
As the train moved out he said,
"Remember me to all the birds!"
And he wagg'd his paw
And went away to war
Shouting out these pathetic words:

"Goodbye-ee, goodbye-ee,
Wipe the tear, baby dear, from your eye-ee!
Tho' it's hard to part I know,
I'll be tickled to death to go.
Don't cry-ee, don't sigh-ee,
There's a silver lining in the sky-ee,
Bonsoir, old thing, cheer-i-o, chin, chin,
Nap-poo, too-dle-oo,
Goodbye-ee."

2. Marmaduke Horatio Flynn
Although he'd whiskers round his chin,
In a play took a part,
And he touch'd ev'ry heart
As little Willie in "East Lynne".
As the little dying child
Upon his snow white bed he lay
And amid their tears the people gave three cheers
When he said as he pass'd away:

"Good-bye-ee, good-bye-ee,
Wipe the tear, baby dear, from your eye-ee,
Tho' it's hard to part I know,
I'll be tickl-ed to death to go.
Don't cry-ee, don't sigh-ee,
There's a silver lining in the sky-ee,
Bonsoir, old thing, cheer-i-o, chin, chin,
Nap-poo, too-dle-oo,
Good-bye-ee."

3. At a concert down at Kew
Some convalescents dressed in blue
Had to hear Lady Lee
Who 'ad turned eighty three
Sing all the old, old songs she knew.
Then she made a speech and said:
"I look up-on you boys with pride.
And for what you've done
I'm going to kiss each one."
Then they all grabb'd their sticks and cried:

Good-bye-ee, good-bye-ee,
Wipe the tear, Lady dear, from your eye-ee,
Tho' it's hard to part I know,
I'll be tickled to death to go.
Don't cry-ee, don't sigh-ee,
There's a silver lining in the sky-ee,
Bonsoir, old thing, cheer-i-o, chin, chin,
Nap-poo, too-dle-oo, Good-bye-ee!
