CHARLIE BOY, DON’T GO TO WAR, FIRST BORN IN FORTY – FOUR
KENNEDY MADE HIM BELIEVE WE COULD DO MUCH MORE

OHHH
LILLIAN, DON’T HANG YOUR HEAD, LOVE SHOULD MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD
IN UNIFORM YOU RAISED A MAN, WHO VOLUNTEERED TO STAND

BRIDGE
OHHH

CHORUS
PLAY THE BUGLE, PLAY THE TAPS AND
MAKE YOUR MOTHERS PROUD
RAISE YOUR RIFLES TO THE SKY BOYS
FIRE THAT VOLLEY LOUD

VERSE
NEWS WAS BAD ON UPLAND AVE., METUCHEN MOURN OUR LOSS
SONS REBELLED, WHILE FATHERS YELLED, AND MOTHERS CLUTCHED THE CROSS

BRIDGE
OHHH

CHORUS
PLAY THE BUGLE, PLAY THE TAPS AND
MAKE YOUR MOTHERS PROUD
RAISE YOUR RIFLES TO THE SKY BOYS
FIRE THAT VOLLEY LOUD
