To the sweetest girl I know!

It's a long long way to Tipperary,
But my heart's right there.“

„I got my finger on the trigger
But I don't know who to trust.
When I look into your eyes
There's just devils and dust.
We're a long, long way from home, Bobbie.
Home's a long, long way from us.
I feel a dirty wind blowing
Devils and dust.“
