The Worst is Yet to Come Lyrics

In childhood day, we’d sing and play, a game we loved so well,
‘I oh! The cheery oh! The farmer in the dell;
But since the war, the words of yore, have changed to fit the times,
The melody is the same to me but the kids have changed the rhymes;
The Kaiser has the measles, the Crown Prince has the croup,
Andy ev’ry one of his other sons, Will soon be in the soup.

Chorus

But the worst is yet to come,
The worst is yet to come,
You won’t know what it’s all about
or where it’s coming from;

You said you’d plaster Paris with your Hindenburg machine,
But now it looks as if you’re on the road to Paris Green,
But the worst is yet to come,
The worst is yet to come;
You tried to put the whole world on the bum;
Now you crazy Kaizer you’ve gotta give up,
you’ve gotta give up, you’ve gotta give up,
But don’t let it worry you,
The worst is yet to come.
