Transcript: 

Verse 1: Don’t you hear the Call Laddie, don’t you hear the Call, Beating loudly in your heart beating most of all? Prove the stuff you’re made of now’s the time to show England begs your aid Laddie aren’t you “game” to go
Chorus: Duty is calling why should you stay, Why do you linger why not away? There flies the Old Flag there let it wave Always defended by Sons of the brave
Verse 2: ‘Tis your country that calls Laddie, she that gave you birth, Shall the Teuton conquer sully this fair earth? Go and do your “bit” Laddie proud to hear the call God protects the right Laddie He is over all Verse 3: From across the seas Laddie, hear that urgent call, Go and help the Motherland she needs you most of all, Sorrowful and patient unyielding in her pride Rally round the flag Laddie put all else aside.
