British Isles Medley-1943
  Regal Zonophone MR3705 Various
  
Men of Harlech are ye waking,
Saxon posts your hills are shaking
Proudly now your swords be taking
Gather in your might

Dye ken John Peel with his coat so gay,
Dye ken John Peel at the break of day
Dye ken John Peel when hes far, far away
With his hounds and his horn in the morning

Come cheer up my lads tis to glory we steer,
To add something new to this wonderful year
To honour we call you not press you like slaves,
For who are so free as the sons of the waves
Hearts of oak are our ships, jolly tars are our men
We always are ready, steady boys, steady
Well fight and we will conquer again and again.

I were acourting Mary Jane, on Ilk-ley moor bahtat
I were acourting Mary, I were acourting Mary, I were acourting Mary Jane
On Ilk-ley moor bahtat, On Ilk-ley moor bahtat,
On Ilk-ley moor bahtat,
By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie brae,
Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond
Where me and my true love will never meet again,
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond

Come landlord fill the flowing bowl until it doth run over,
Come landlord fill the flowing bowl until it doth run over,
For tonight well merry, merry be,
For tonight well merry, merry be
For tonight well merry be. Tomorrow well be sober.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind,
Should auld acquaintance be forgot?
And the days of auld lang syne,
For auld lang syne my dear, for auld lang syne
Well take a cup of kindness yet for the sake of auld lang syne
