Guarding The Home Of The Home Guard-1940
  Regal Zonophone MR3411 Latta/Formby 

Now behold me an L.D.V. for battle I'm just yearning
Doing my best like all the rest to keep the home fires burning.
Each evening stiff as starch, up and down the street I march.
I'm guarding the home of the home guards, guarding the home guards home
Steady and strong, all night long,
Doing what I'm told and I can't go wrong.

Lots of ladies I salute, but one old dame was rather cute.
She wanted to see my parachute, while guarding the home guards home.
When I shout 'halt' their knees all knock, if they don't stand just like a rock.
They get It where the monkey got the clock, guarding the home guards home.

I'm guarding the home of the home guards, guarding the home guards home.
All night long, steady and strong, doing what I'm told and I can't go wrong.
The girls are fond of me no doubt, but last night one of them gave a shout
She saw me pulling my bayonet out, guarding the home guards home.
One evening as an L.D.V, some German soldiers I did see.
They ran like hell but they couldn't catch me guarding the home guards home.

I'm guarding the home of the home guards, guarding the home guards home.
All night long, steady and strong, doing what I'm told and I can't go wrong.
The sergeant nearly had a fit, he found my rifle full of grit
So I told him what to do with it, guarding the home guards home
We had a visit you can guess, from members of the A.T.S
Now the A.T.S. are in a mess, through guarding the home guards home.

Rule Britannia, youve never any need to roam
While I'm guarding, guarding, guarding the home guards home.
