Off-Broadway musical (2016)
Cagney the Musical - USO Medley Lyrics


(Music & Lyrics by George M. Cohan)

Jimmy:
Did you ever see two yankees part
Upon a foreign shore
When the good ship's just about to start
For old new york once more?
With tear-dimmed eye they say goodbye
They're friends without a doubt
And the man on the pier
Shouts, "let them clear"
As the ship strikes out

Cagney (spoken):
What's that i hear?
My brother, bill cagney, dusted off his tap shoes for the occasion...
And my good old friend, the inimitable, bob hope. Shall we boys?

Men:
Give my regards to broadway
Remember me to herald square
Tell all the gang at forty-second street
That i will soon be there
Whisper of how i'm yearning
To mingle with the old time throng
Give my regards to old broadway
And say that i'll be there e'er long

Women:
Oh you wonderful boy
What a wonderful boy you are

Willie:
You’ve made the world appear to me

Joan leslie:
Near to me

Women:
Dear to me
Oh those wonderful eyes thrill me through

Cagney:
Thrill me through

Women:
It seems to me to be a wonderful world since i met you

Bill:
H - a - double r - i - g - a - n spells harrigan
Proud of all the irish blood that's in me 
Divil a man can say a word agin me
H - a - double r - i - g - a - n, you see
Is a name that a shame never has been connected with harrigan 
That's me!

(tap dance break)

Is a name that a shame never has been connected with harrigan...

(tap dance)
... That's me!

Bill (spoken):
My brother pointed out that there aren’t enough ladies on this base.
So we decided to do something about that.... 

All four (except Jimmy):
Mary, mary, mary, mary, mary
Mary, mary, mary, mary, mary
Mary, mary, mary, mary, mary
Mary, mary, mary, mary, mary
Mary!

Bob Hope (with backup singing):
For it is mary, mary
Plain as any name can be
But with propriety
Society will say marie

(they dance with bob hope.)

But it was mary, mary:
Long before the fashions came
And there is something there that sounds so fair
It's a grand old 

Bob Hope:
Flag

Willie, Bill, Joan:
Name! It’s a grand old 

Bob Hope:
Flag

Willie, Bill, Joan:
Name! It’s a grand old name

Willie, Bill, Joan:
Johnnie get your gun, get you gun, get your gun,
Take it on the run, on the run, on the run,
Hoist the flag and let it fly
Like true heros do or die

All:
Over there, over there
Send the word, send the word,
Over there

(tap break)

That the yanks are coming,
The yanks are coming,
The drums rum tumming everywhere
So prepare,
Say a prayer
Send the word,
Send the word to beware
We'll be over, we're coming over.
And we won't be back till it's over over there!

(tap break)

Give my regards to broadway
Remember me to herald square
Tell all the gang at forty-second street
That i will soon be there
Whisper of how i'm yearning
To mingle with the old time throng
Give my regards to old broadway
And say that i'll be there e'er long
Give my regards to old broadway
And say that i'll be there e'er long
