Keep Calm and Carry On!

Chorus

Keep calm and carry on!
You’ve got to keep calm and carry on!
Yes, try to keep calm and carry on!
Keep calm and carry on! (repeat)

V1
When you’re tired and sleepy
And curled up in your bed,
You hear the air raid siren
It’s filling you with dread!
When your clothes have holes and
They’re not the latest trend,
You hear your mother saying,
“We’ll all make do and mend!” Oh!

Chorus

V2
When your Dad’s a soldier
With orders to obey,
It’s time to bid him, “Farewell”,
As he is sent away!
When your stomach’s aching
And food’s in short supply,
When all your sweets are rationed
And you just wonder why! Oh!

Chorus

(last line)
Keep calm, we’ve got to, yes by Jove!
Keep calm and carry on!
