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.
There'll be bluebirds over
The white cliffs of Dover,
Tomorrow
Just you wait and see.
We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know we'll meet again
Some sunny day
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
t'is I'll be there in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.
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
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.
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;
Hitlers første verdenskrig Kvinderne i Ravensbrück

Bogtips

Boogie Woogie er en blues klaverstil og det sikkert grunden til ”Bugle” (et signalhorn)nævnes i titlen. Sangen blev indspillet første gang den 2. januar 1941.

Andrews Sisters fik et megahit med sangen. Angrebet mod Pearl Harbor og krigen gjorde ikke succesen mindre.

Bette Midler og Christina Aguilera (Boogie Woogie Candyman) har også haft succes med sangen. Nederst kan de tre fremførelser ses og høres (de kan alle varmt anbefales).
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
But then his number came up and he was gone with the draft
He's in the army now, a-blowin' reveille
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B


They made him blow a bugle for his Uncle Sam
It really brought him down because he couldn't jam
The captain seemed to understand
Because the next day the cap' went out and drafted a band
And now the company jumps when he plays reveille
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B



A-toot, a-toot, a-toot-diddelyada-toot
He blows it eight-to-the-bar, in boogie rhythm
He can't blow a note unless the bass and guitar is playin' with 'im
He makes the company jump when he plays reveille
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B


He was some boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B
And when he plays the boogie woogie bugle he was busy as a "bzzz" bee
And when he plays he makes the company jump eight-to-the-bar
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B


Toot toot toot-diddelyada, Toot-diddelyada, toot-toot
He blows it eight-to-the-bar
He can't blow a note if the bass and guitar isn't with 'im
ha-ha-hand the company jumps when he plays reveille
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B Reveile


(instrumental)


He puts the boys to sleep with boogie every night
And wakes 'em up the same way in the early bright
They clap their hands and stamp their feet
Because they know how he plays when someone gives him a beat
He really breaks it up when he plays reveille
He's boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B


Dat-da da-do-do da-dup
Dat-da da-do-do da-dup
Dat-da da-do-do da-dup
Dat-da da-do-do da-dup
ha-ha-hand the company jumps when he plays reveille
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B
