שירי המלחמה בבריטניה

בשנת 1940, בעיצומו של הקרב על בריטניה, כשהבריטים האמינו כי הם עומדים לבדם במערכה, Ross Parker & Hugh Charles כתבו והלחינו את השיר "בריטניה לעולם ועד", There'll always be an England  שגרסתו הפופולרית ביותר הושמעה על ידי הזמרת ורה לין  Vera Lynn  אשר כונתה - יקירת החיילים The forces sweetheart

There'll always be an England, while there's a country lane.
Wherever there's a cottage small beside a field of grain
There'll always be an England while there's a busy street.
Wherever there's a turning wheel - a million marching feet.
Red, white and blue - what does it mean to you?
Surely you're proud - shout it loud - Britons awake!
The Empire too - we can depend on you.
Freedom remains - these are the chains nothing can break.
There'll always be an England and England shall be free
If England means as much to you as England means to me.
  we'll meet again  כתבו והלחינו גם את "אנו נשוב ונפגש"   אשר גם בוצע על-ידי ורה לין Ross Parker & Hugh Charles 

We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when
But I know we'll meet again some sunny day.
Keep smilin' through - just like you always do
'Til the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away.
So will you please say Hello to the folks that I know
Tell them - I won't be long.
They'll be happy to know that as you saw me go
I was singing this song.
We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when
But I know we'll meet again some sunny day.

ורה לין השמיעה גם את שירם של Nat Burton & Walter Kent - "צוקי דובר הלבנים"  The White Cliffs Of Dover

There'll be blue birds over the white cliffs of Dover,
Tomorrow, just you wait and see.
There'll be love and laughter and peace ever after
Tomorrow, when the world is free.
The shepherd will tend his sheep, the valley will bloom again
And Jimmy will go to sleep, in his own little room again.
There'll be blue birds over the white cliffs of Dover,
Tomorrow, just you wait and see.
