Lest We Forget

I Wrote this song a few years back as a reminder to us of those that have gone before…

My Mom was a Sister ( nurse ) in WWII, my father in-law a RC Navy crewman and made it to Normandy.

We can argue through the lens of history of the right and wrong of the conflict, but those that served believed it to be the right thing to do.  They all paid a price, no matter which side of the lines they had come.

They paid a price so we would live in peace…

Have we forgotten?

 

LEST WE FORGET 

When was it said it couldn’t happen again. It could happen again.

It could happen again..

They did suffer the loss, they did suffer the pain.

Lest we forget,

Oh, Lest we forget

 

Take the lives of the virile young men,

Away to the front they will be sent

Always on guard ’til the last bullets spent

Lest we forget,

Oh, Lest we forget

 

Sisters Soldiers Flyers and Sailors

All who had lived the valour the horror,

All who gave all in their own country’s honour

Lest we forget,

Oh, Lest we forget

 

As time passes by our memories dim

History re-written, truly a sin,

Lessons not learned be repeated again

Lest we forget,

Oh, Lest we forget

 

When was it said it couldn’t happen again. It could happen again.

It could happen again..

We would suffer the loss, We would suffer the pain.

Lest we forget,

It will happen again
