Little sister, please don’t fear, It will only be one year. You will go to school each day, I just won’t be here to say “Hey” My dear mama, please don’t cry, I’ll be back soon, it’s ok. Life at home will be the same, Only I won’t be home late. Daddy, daddy, lose the sorrow, I will join the army tomorrow. Today we’ll have to have some fun, Celebrate the things we’ve done. Honey, do not look so sad, You’ll come to visit me with dad. If you can, then do not cry, Because all shall be alright. Friends, don’t you sit there, hollow, Come and laugh over tomorrow. A little humor makes it better, Makes it funny, like some beggar.
