"OVER THE TOP"
The kaiser called the devil up,
On the telephone one day,
The girl at Central listened to
All they had to say.
"Hello," die heard the laiser's voice,
"Is old man Satan home?
Just t41 him this is Kaiser Bill,
That wants him on the phone."
The devil said, "Hello" to Bill.
And Bill said, "How are you?
I'm running here a hell on earth,
So tell me what to do."
"What can I do?" the devil said,
"My dear old Kaiser Bill?
"If there's one thing that I can do,
To help you, I sure will."
The kaiser said: "Now listen,
And I will try to tell'
The way that I am running
On earth a modern hell.
"I've saved for this for many years,
And I've started out to kill,
That it will be a modern job,
You leave to Kaiser Bill.
"My army went through Belgium,
Shooting women and children down.
We tore up all her country,
And blew up all her towns.
"My Zepps dropped bombs on cities,
Killing both- old ana young,
And those the Zeppelins didn't get
We've taken out and hung.
"I started out for Paris
With the aid of poisonous gas,
The Belgians, damn 'em, stopped us,
And would not let us pass.
"My submarines are devils,
Why! you should see them fight.
They go sneaking through the seas
And sink a ship at sight.
"I was running things to suit me,
Till a year or so ago,
When a man named Woodrow Wilson
Wrote me to go more slow.
"He said to me, 'Dear William,
We don't want to make you sore,
So be sure to tell your U-boats
To sink our ships no more.'
"I dlid not listen to him,
And he's coming after me
With a million Yankee soldiers
From their homes across the sea.
"Now that's wvhy I called you, Satan,
For I..want advice from you,
I knew that you would tell me
Just wyhat I ought to do."
"My dear old Kaiser William,
There's not much for me to tell,
For the Yanks will make it hotter
Than I can for you in hell.
"I've been a mean old devil,
But not half as mean as you,
And the minute that you get here
I will give my job to you.
"I'll be ready for your coming,
And I'll keep the fires all bright,
And I'll have your room all ready,
When the Yanks begin to fight.
"For the boys in blue will get you,
I have n'othing more to tell;
Hang up the phone, and get your hat,
And rawet me here in hell."
