Goodbye Dear, I'll Be Back in a Year
#1

The lyrics below are from the version I have on the VI Corps Jukebox. Below these lyrics is a video on YouTube featuring another version, which is quite comical.

 

GOODBYE DEAR, I'LL BE BACK IN A YEAR

(Mack Kay)

 

Horace Heidt & His Musical Knights (vocals: Ronnie Kemper & Donna Wood) - 1941

Dick Robertson & His Orch. - 1941

Bob Crosby & His Orch. - 1941

Frank Luther - 1941

 

 

 

RONNIE KEMPER:

Goodbye Dear, I'll be back in a year

'Cause I'm in the army now

They took my number right out of the hat

And there's nothing a guy can do about that

 

DONNA WOOD:

But when you get back you'll be all tanned and brown

Say, couldn't we buy that cottage right outside of town

RONNIE KEMPER:

Goodbye Dear, I'll be back in a year

Don't forget that I love you

 

DONNA:

Don't fear, Dear, I'll be here in a year

'Cause I'm true to the Army now

RONNIE:

Ah, what a soldier, you wait and see

Why, I'll be a big gun in the artillery

 

DONNA:

Now honey, be sure and keep cozy and warm

Gee, you look cute in that new uniform

RONNIE:

Oh, goodbye Dear, I'll be back in a year

Don't forget that I love you

 

(Orchestral Interlude)

 

RONNIE:

Goodbye Dear, well I'm here for a year

I'm in the Army now

But don't you worry, the General and I

Are the greatest of pals

DONNA:

Now, Ronnie, don't you lie

RONNIE:

Well, he fixed it up so I could have breakfast in bed

DONNA:

Well, why are you peeling potatoes instead?

RONNIE:

Oh, he's just kidding me

Good bye dear, I'll be back in a year

Don't forget that I

DONNA:

Don't forget that I

BOTH: Don't forget that I love you
