Transcript: 

Verse 1: We gave a farewell party, for a girl named Mary Brown, She was a Red Cross nurse, who was loved by all in town, To de her bit it was her hope, and help out in the fray, She kissed her comrades as she left with parting words did say.
Chorus: Goodbye girls, I’ll be sailing on the Transport tomorrow, Don’t sigh, don’t cry, cast aside all sentiment and sorrows, I’ve cancelled all my pleasure here, altho’ I love to dance, and now that duty calls me, I must help our boys in France, Just write a cheery letter to me, when you get a chance, So Goodbye girls.
Verse 2: Now May wrote a letter home to friends which read this way, Please come and help the cause, you are wanted every day, We need the girls as well as men, this war it must be won, It’s up to one and all to help the man behind the gun.
