Thanks Mr Roosevelt-1941
  Regal Zonophone MR3441 Connor

John Bull has written a message and sent it off by clipper plane today.
Oh what a wonderful message, now let me tell you what it had to say.

It just said "Thanks Mr. Roosevelt it's swell of you
For the way you're helping us to carry on.
You'll see the British Empire smiling through
When these dark and stormy days are gone.

And Franklyn, by the way, please convey
Our congratulations to the folks in USA
Were saying thanks Mr. Roosevelt we're proud of you
Far the way you're helping us to carry on.

Old friend you've never denied us,
In our hearts your name Is evergreen,
Your land is standing beside us,
As in the days of nineteen seventeen.

So we say "Thanks Mr. Roosevelt it's swell of you
For the way you're helping us to carry on.
You'll see the British Empire smiling through
When these dark and stormy days are gone

And Franklyn, by the way, please convey
Our congratulations to the folks in USA
We're saying "Thanks Mr. Roosevelt we're proud of you
For the way you're helping us to carry on.

And Franklyn, by the way, please convey
Our congratulations to the folks in USA
We're saying, "Thanks Mr. Roosevelt, we're proud of you
For the way you're helping us to carry on.
