There'll be bluebirds over
The white cliffs of Dover,
Tomorrow
Just you wait and see.
I give you a toast, ladies and gentlemen.
I give you a toast, ladies and gentlemen.
May this fair dear land we love so well
In dignity and freedom dwell.
da jeg fløj over denne den største by i verden, vidste jeg med absolut sikkerhed, som om jeg kunne se ind i fremtiden: Alt dette vil blive ødelagt.
Brug nu den, og så forstanden, lad det boble lidt på panden,
sådan finder kvinden manden, bare boblerne er små!
Møde hvad der venter os,
og ingen véd hvordan det går.
Bære skæbnen uden trods,
He was a famous trumpet man from out Chicago way
He had a boogie style that no one else could play
He was the top man at his craft
To be or not to be
that's the question
but not to me,
Up to mighty London came an Irish-
man one day,
as the street are paved with gold
sure ev’ryone was gay;
Vor der Kaserme vor dem großen Tor
stand eine Lanterne
und steht sie nach davor
so wollen wir da uns wieder sehen
bei der Lanterne wollen wir stehen
wie einst Lili Marlen
Hitlers første verdenskrig Kvinderne i Ravensbrück

Bogtips

En engelsk sang fra 1939, som blev sunget a Vera Lynn. Vi mødes igen er afskeden til soldaterne som drog i krig, hvor mange ikke ville vende tilbage.

Der er to versioner af sangen. Den første er den mest kendte, men den anden er vist fra 1940 og har en spændende tekst.

Kim Larsen har lavet en version af sangen som hedder: Vi ses igen.

We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know we'll meet again
Some sunny day
Keep smiling through
Just like you always do
'Till the blue skies
Drive the dark clouds far away

So, will you please say hello
To the folks that I know
Tell them I won't be long
They'll be happy to know
That as you saw me go
I was singing this song

We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know we'll meet again
Some sunny day

We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know we'll meet again
Some sunny day
Keep smiling through
Just like you always do
'Till the blue skies
Drive the dark clouds far away

So, will you please say hello
To the folks that I know
Tell them I won't be long
They'll be happy to know
That as you saw me go
I was singing this song

We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know we'll meet again
Some sunny day

Let's say goodbye with a smile, dear,
Just for a while, dear, we must part.
Don't let the parting upset you,
I'll not forget you, sweetheart.

We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when,
But I know we'll meet again, some sunny day.
Keep smiling through, just like you always do,
'Til the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away.

So will you please say hello to the folks that I know,
Tell them I won't be long.
They'll be happy to know that as you saw me go,
I was singing this song.

After the rain comes the rainbow,
You'll see the rain go, never fear,
We two can wait for tomorrow,
Goodbye to sorrow, my dear.
