Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit Bag

“Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love,
a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.”

- Mother Teresa
(26 Aug 1910 - 05 Sept 1997)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

                  My mama (the late Maxine Frix Buckley - John Marshall HS - '25) (19 May 1908 - 15 Feb 1999) used to sing this old WWI song  to       my sister (Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) and me often to teach us a valuable lesson about bearing our burdens gracefully. It still comes readily to my mind whenever I need to refresh that thought.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pack_Up_Your_Troubles_in_Your_Old_Kit-Bag:

"Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit-Bag, and Smile, Smile, Smile" is the full name of a World War I marching song, published in 1915 in London. It was written by George Henry Powell under the pseudonym of "George Asaf", and set to music by his brother Felix Powell.[1] A play presented by the National Theatre recounts how these music hall stars rescued the song from their rejects pile and re-scored it to win a wartime competition for a marching song.[2] It became very popular, boosting British morale despite the horrors of that war. It was one of a large number of music hall songs aimed at maintaining morale, recruiting for the forces, or defending Britain's war aims

FINALLY:
From www.ajokeaday.com - 07/21/15:

Three Antartians were going on a hunting trip one day. They came to a high fence and saw a sign that said, "No Trespassing. All violators will be shot!"

They ignored the sign's warning and climbed the fence anyway. After they were over the fence (it was dark by then), they saw a car's headlights speeding toward them. They remembered the sign's warning and scrambled up separate trees.

The driver, a farmer, thought to himself, "I know I saw someone climb one of these trees."

He went to the first tree and yelled, "Who's up there?"

The first man was very silent and the farmer moved to the next tree. Again he yelled, "Who's up there?"

The second man knew that the farmer would take a closer look this time, so he said, "Whooo Whooo [like an owl]."

The farmer then went to the last tree thinking he could have made a mistake and did not see anyone. He looked up in the next tree and said, "Who's up there?"

The third man then said confidently, "Mooooooooooooooo."

Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit-Bag

Lyrics by George Henry Powell (27 Apr 1880 - 03 Dec 1951), 1915

Music by Felix Powell (23 May 1878 – 10 Feb 1942)


Private Perks is a funny little codger
With a smile a funny smile.
Five feet none, he’s and artful little dodger
With a smile a funny smile.
Flush or broke he’ll have his little joke,
He can’t be suppress’d.
All the other fellows have to grin
When he gets this off his chest, Hi!

CHORUS: [sung twice after each verse]
Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
And smile, smile, smile,
While you’ve a lucifer to light your fag,
Smile, boys, that’s the style.
What’s the use of worrying?
It never was worth while, so
Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
And smile, smile, smile.

Private Perks went a-marching into Flanders
With his smile his funny smile.
He was lov’d by the privates and commanders
For his smile his funny smile.
When a throng of Bosches came along
With a mighty swing,
Perks yell’d out, “This little bunch is mine!
Keep your heads down, boys and sing, Hi!

Private Perks he came back from Bosche-shooting
With his smile his funny smile.
Round his home he then set about recruiting
With his smile his funny smile.
He told all his pals, the short, the tall,
What a time he’d had;
And as each enlisted like a man
Private Perks said ‘Now my lad,’ Hi!
