Michael Reynolds: Lest We Forget

The File is a 1.19 Mb MP3 and plays for 1:18 minutesVerse 1: Although you’re getting on in years And memories seem to disappear Some things will never fade away Some memories will stay There’s one day in each year you will not forget If this year’s your last year – we will not forget Chorus: One more parade – one less digger by your side One year you’re marching – the next you ride Hold your head up high – hold your head up high Lest we forget – lest we forget Verse 2: It seems a long, long time ago A young man far away from home Friends made and lost along the way Some memories will stay Those who died – those who live, you will not forget If this year’s your last year – we will not forget Chorus Bridge.
