Transcript: 

Verse 1: We have praised Joan of Arc, the soldier lass of France, How she stirred defeated troops to make a fresh advance, But our British hearts are moved By a tale we long will tell Of how she faced the foemen’s guns Our martyred Nurse Cavell!
Chorus: Remember how she gladly nursed your pals boys! Remember how she striv’d to make them well, Don’t forget how patiently she suffered, And remember how she bore the prison cell! Remember how she bravely gave her life boys; Remember when you’re facing shot and shell, she was made of British stuff, So are you and that’s enough the Bull Dog’s loose Remember Nurse Cavell
Verse 2: Oh! Our brave heroic girls who nurse our wounded men, Let their praises ring afar, the tale repeat again, Hostile prisons could not break German threats could never quell, The stalwart heart that knew no fear, Our martyred Nurse Cavell!
