Buy the new book, "Beaucoup Arlo & Janis!"Today's "Arlo & Janis!"
In case you’re wondering, here are the lyrics to the song. I’m sure you’ll want to pay particular attention to the parody verse at the end. Saucy stuff at the time of World War I. The article goes on to mention many plays and movies in which the song “It’s a Long Way to Tipperary” was sung. One of them was “The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming,” the wonderful movie from 1966 and certainly in my top 50. I don’t think more has ever been said in a movie line than was said by the Russian sailor who, when asked why his submarine and its crew were lurking off New England, replied, “We wanted to see it!”
