We Did It Before And We Can Do It Again

video
The PBS "The War" site has a wealth of great resources available. One section has WW2 posters. I thought I'd combine them with WW2 songs I found at authentic history
Here are the lyrics for this song, written by New York boy Charlie Tobias
December seventh nineteen-hundred and forty-one
Our land of freedom was defied
December eighth nineteen-hundred and forty-one
Uncle Sam replied.
We did it before and we can do it again
And we will do it again
We've got a heck of a job to do
But you can bet we'll see it thru.
We did it before and we can do it again
And we will do it again
We're one for all and all for one
They'll get a licking before we're done
Millions of voices are ringing
Singing as we march along
We did it before and we can do it again
And we will do it again
We'll knock them over and then we'll get the guy in back of them
We did it before, we'll do it again

We did it before and we can do it again
And we will do it again, we'll take the nip out of Nipponese
and chase them back to the cherry trees
We did it before and we can do it again
And we will do it again
When we get going and start to click
We'll put the ax in the axis quick
Millions of voices are ringing
Singing as we march along
We did it before and we can do it again
And we will do it again
This country never has lost a war since days of William Penn
We did it before, we'll do it again
Millions of voices are ringing
Singing as we march along
We did it before and we can do it again
And we will do it again
And even though it may take a year
or two or five or ten
We did it before, we'll do it all over again

BE ADVISED ...
"The unaltered U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of our land, the United States of America! Just as our Founding Fathers did, we freedom loving American Citizens and Patriots will fight to the death, if need be, to support and defend this most costly document!"

"All that's necessary for evil to triumph
Is for good men to do nothing."
Benjamin Franklin

"No man who refuses to bear arms in defense of his nation can give
A sound reason why he should be allowed to live in a free country"
T. Roosevelt

There are always ...
Too many Democratic congressmen,
Too many Republican congressmen,
And never enough U.S. Congressmen.
