“Oh! It’s a Lovely War!” Written by J.P. Long and M. Scott Performed by Courtland and Jeffries Up to your waist in water, Up to your eyes in slush, Using the kind of language That makes the sergeants blush; Who wouldn't join the army, That's what we all inquire, Don't we pity the poor civilians Sitting beside the fire? Chorus: Oh! Oh! Oh! It's a lovely war, Who wouldn't be a soldier, eh? Oh, it's a shame to take the pay. As soon as reveille has gone We feel just as heavy as lead, But we never get up till the sergeant Brings our breakfast up to bed. What do you want with eggs and ham When you've got plum and apple jam? Form fours! Right turn! How shall we spend the money we earn? When does a soldier grumble? When does a soldier make a fuss? No one is more contented In all the world than us. Oh, it's a cushy life, boys, Really, we love it so; Once a fellow was sent on leave And simply refused to go.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
