The Royal Song of the Day for Thursday, September 1st is “I Didn’t Raise My Boy To Be A Soldier” by Leo Feist. You can find the lyrics to this song in the Rise Up Singing songbook, on page 160.
Excerpt from the lyrics:
I didn’t raise my boy to be a soldier
I brought him up to be my pride & joy
Who dares to place a musket on his shoulder?
To shoot some other mother’s darling boy?…
