In My Heart Next To Mother

On their way back home again,
From the war with victory won,
They all joined in sweet refrain
When their task for the day was done.
Songs of home and loved sweethearts,
Songs of joy and of happy days;
Then a lad with Purple Heart,
San of one with a mother's ways.

In my heart next to mother
Is the nurse of our own "Red Cross"
Where the world is in bother,
She is there to prevent a loss.
With a heart for all others,
On the land or where billows toss:
And a love like a mother's
Is the nurse of our own Red Cross.
