[page 2] "THE S.H.A.E.F. COMMUNIQUE" [COMMUNIQUES] Melody like "MANDALAY" -
Lyrics like nothing you have ever heard before.
Lis't to SHAEF's COMMUNIQUE -
All the war news every day,
Can't you hear the words a-tumblin'
From Verdun to Biscay Bay.
It's today's COMMUNIQUE -
Nothing new in what we say.
G-3 scorns us - G-2 loathes us
PR hates to give us pay.
It's last week's COMMUNIQUE,
Hot from out old Monty's way
Can't you see it's "Most Immediate"
Signals paused to have some "tay"!
Christmas Day's COMMUNIQUE
Came out on the third of May.
Brown had routed it to London
But it went to Santa Fe -
Still it's SHAEF'S COMMUNIQUE
Never matter what the day.
It's the umpteenth High Commandment
Written in the Four-Star Way!
Come ye back to PAREE gay
Where for smokes you got a lay
Come ye back ye correspondents
It's the LAST COMMUNIQUE!
It's the LAST COMMUNIQUE
Talisman has come to stay,
And the General goes to Berlin
While we fly to U - S - A!!!!! [USA]
