The 36th Battalion: a record of service of the 36th Battalion with the Third Division in the Pacific
Would you like to go to the movies in the cool of the evening air?
There's a jolly good show at the CB camp, but I'm sorry you can't go there.
You can catch the barge to Falamai—it's a show you've seen before;
You're sure to arrive too late for a seat, but there's always room on the floor.
Or take a walk to the Bomber Group, as long as the strip is clear,
And in between the roar of planes there'll be a bit you'll hear.
As sure as you go too far from home we'll get 'condition red'.
So don't forget you old tin hat, lest shrapnel strike your head;
And if perchance your luck is out and you're caught in pouring rain
By the time you've sweated the long trek home, you're nearly dry again.
There's hardly a thing to do in camp, no matter how hard you try,
So take a chance at a movie show, out under the starry sky.
