  • Daddy, daddy, come and look
    See what I have found
    A little ways away from here
    While digging in the ground

    Come away Melinda
    Come in and close the door
    It's nothing, just a picture-book
    They had before the war

    Daddy, daddy, come and see
    Daddy, come and look
    Why, there's four or five
    Little Melinda girls
    Inside my picture book

    Come away Melinda
    Come in and close the door
    There were lots of little girls like you
    Before they had the war

    Oh Daddy, daddy, come and see
    Daddy, hurry do
    Why, there's someone
    In a pretty dress
    She's all grown up like you
    Won't you tell me why

    Come away Melinda
    Come in and close the door
    That someone is your Mummy
    You had before the war

    Daddy, daddy, tell me if you can
    Why can't things be
    The way they were
    Before the war began

    Come away Melinda
    Come in and close the door
    The answer lies in yesterday
    Before they had the war
