WE'RE ALL GOOD PALS AT LAST
(The Hoover Song)
 
div
 

Whoever would have thought that Hoover
Would make such a sweeping plan
As to sweep away the cobwebs
That have made things black and our business black?
It certainly was a diplomatic gesture
And I dearly think he's right
It's going to be great for everyone
So sing with all your might:

Chorus: America has given way to England
England has given way to France
France has given way to Germany
So we're all good pals at last.
Aeroplanes and radio have brought us closer together
Now we realise it's necessary to pull together
So America has given way to England
England has given way to France
France has given way to Germany
So we're all good pals at last.
Let's hope we are all good pals at last.

We've got to get co-operation and work in a friendly way
Here's a gift for ev'ry nation
Whether great or small it includes them all
This quarrelling is hindering our progress
And it's plain enough to see
We've got to start again in friendship's name
To bring prosperity.

Chorus: America has given way to England
England has given way to France
France has given way to Germany
So we're all good pals at last.
Aeroplanes and radio
Have brought us closer together
Now we realise it's necessary to pull together
So America has given way to England
England has given way to France
France has given way to Germany
So we're all good pals at last.
Let's hope that we're all good pals at last.
