1 BACK TO THE BLITZ © C. Schuman 2010

2 Song 1: Somethings Not Quite What it Seems Everything you see and hear is not always as it appears. Ever heard somebody scream: Somethings not quite what it seems! Just the other day I swear, in the garden unaware, We had stumbled on a find. What it was just blew our minds. Everything you see and hear is not always as it appears. Ever heard somebody scream: Somethings not quite what it seems! Back in time we travelled to another time, Chaos and confusion. Was it an illusion? Everything you see and hear Is not always as it appears. Ever heard somebody scream: Somethings not quite, somethings not quite, Somethings not quite what it seems!

3 Song 2: Leaving from the Station VERSE 1 (parents) Leaving from the station In anticipation, Watching all the little kiddies go. Trying to be brave as they give a wave. This is really quite a special show. CHORUS: (parents & evacuees) Im gonna miss you, miss you, Wish you could stay. I really love you, love you, more than I can say. (evacuees) Dark nights, bad dreams, Cant get to sleep. Hungry, starving, nothing to eat. VERSE 2 (parents) Dont forget to write, Tell me youre all right, Hope you have a really pleasant stay. Youll be in my prayers, Youll be in good care, Promise Ill be counting down the days. CHORUS and VERSE 1

4 Song 3: Dads Army (Shouted:) Left, right, left, right…ATTENTION! Verse 1: (spoken or in harmony) At the ready, nice and steady, Were the Home Guard Army. Done the drilling, keen and willing. Cheerful, strong and charmin. CHORUS: Through the night we creep. While you gently sleep. Eyes are open wide. Well be by your side. Were Dads Army, were Dads Army, At the ready, nice and steady. To the left, to the right, On the job, day and night. Looking high, looking low, Never stopping, on the go. Tally Tally ho! (Shouted:) Like it!, Left, right, left, right…ATTENTION! Verse 2: We are ready for the Germans, We will get them squirmin, If they land by air or sea, We will make em flee. CHORUS.

5 Song 4: Potato Petes Tango They call me Potato Pete, Yes! Potato Pete. I am so nifty on my feet, Such an ath(e)lete. Come take a look at what Ive got, You will be tempted with the lot. Come buy your hot potatoes here Before I disappear. Then turn me into a soup Or some enchanted dish. Bake me or mash or fry me, Anything you wish! Potato is just so versatile, Brings out the best and makes you smile. Tastiest option of the day, What do you say? Hooray for Potato Pete!

6 Song 5: Missing You 1. Ive been dreamin About my home And I take back what I said When I said I wouldnt miss you. I really miss those goodnight kisses, I really miss those goodnight talks, I really miss it when you say: Goodnight, sweet dreams. Its true to say t hat Im missing home But Im missing you much more. 2. Ive been dreamin About your food And I take back what I said When I said I hate your cooking. I really miss those chicken pies, I really miss that corned beef hash, I really miss it when you say: For what we are about to receive May the Lord make us truly thankful. Amen. Its true to say that I miss your food But Im missing you much more.

7 Song 6: East End Boys VERSE 1 Were coming, were coming, Were coming from East London. Get ready, get ready, Its gonna feel like thunder. You better, you better, Be wary, be wary. Were gonna take the town right now. CHORUS Put em up and face us now. We are gonna bring you down. We have never lost a fight. We are gonna take the town. EAST END BOYS, CLARIO EX OBSCURO. VERSE 2 Were big-uns, were big-uns, Youre gonna be regretting You came here, you came here Were gonna get you sweating. You suckers, you losers, Youll find out were bruisers, Were gonna get to you somehow. CHORUS

8 Song 7: Ration Time Blues 1. Got a nasty case of the blues Makes me wanna take to the booze. Its called the ration time blues And its much worse than the flu, oh yeah. They wanna take away my meat, They wanna take away my tea. CHORUS: When youve got these ration time blues Everything is seen as bad news. Just to keep on winning Gotta keep on singing the blues. 2. Getting sick and tired of queues Gives a double dose of the blues. Theyve now reduced my milk And my butter and my cheese, oh please, Whatever made them think of these? Its gonna bring me to my knees. CHORUS 3. Thats my little story to you All about the ration time blues And if I had the choice I would gladly raise a voice and say I wanna sail away with you, I wanna sail away real soon.

9 Song 8: The Fixer 1. Ive got everything for you to wear, Ive got lots of things I wanna share From stockings to suits and underwear, Quality clothing, that I swear. CHORUS: Im the fixer, I can get you all things in a trice. Ive got all the contacts Ill get you anything at a price! 2. Ive got everything for you to eat Things you cant buy out on the street From chocolates, tomatoes and red meat To treats for the kids like boiled sweets. CHORUS

10 Song 9: Put That Light Out! 1. Put that light out I hear you say, Put that light out I hear you say, Its the Blackout. Its the Blackout, Dont you know? Would you want to be a target for the Jerry? Would you want to be a target for the Jerry? Chorus 2. Dig for Victory I hear you say, Dig for Victory I hear you say, Its the wartime. Its the wartime, Dont you know? Could you grow potatoes in your flower bed? Could you grow potatoes in your flower bed? Chorus 3. Make do and mend I hear you say, Make do and mend I hear you say, We are saving. We are saving, Dont you know? Could you make a pair of undies from a parachute? Could you make a pair of undies from a parachute? Chorus CHORUS: GOT TO DO OUR BIT IF WE WORK AS ONE GOT TO SHOW TRUE GRIT THEN THIS WAR IS WON! Optional : Repeat verse one.

11 Song 10: Mollys Song (Gone Missing) Verse 1: I often think of him, I often pray for him, I often speak to him Before I go to bed at night. Verse 2: Then in my dreams hes there And all the world is fair. We laugh and sing out loud Without a care in the world. Recitative: But when the morning comes My heart is broken For I know hell never return to me. Verse 3: They simply said Gone missing, I live a life just wishing To turn the clock back now If only God will allow, somehow.

12 Song 11: Somethings Not Quite What it Seems Everything you see and hear is not always as it appears. Ever heard somebody scream: Somethings not quite what it seems! Just the other day I swear, in the garden unaware, We had stumbled on a find. What it was just blew our minds. Everything you see and hear is not always as it appears. Ever heard somebody scream: Somethings not quite what it seems! Back in time we travelled to another time, Chaos and confusion. Was it an illusion? Everything you see and hear Is not always as it appears. Ever heard somebody scream: Somethings not quite, somethings not quite, Somethings not quite what it seems!
