Wartime WG song during the Blitz.

4 posts in this topic

The Second World War produced a huge upswing in prostitution, what with all the soldiers around -- especially once the well-paid Yanks turned up. I just read in a newspaper that there was even a popular song, "I've Got the Deepest Shelter in Town," with the refrain

Now don't be mean

Better men than you have been

In the deepest shelter in town!

The spirit of the Blitz kinda takes on a whole new meaning...

You wouldn't happen to have a recording of it for download, would you? (and, indeed, one of the words to Kalabakan?)

Nope, just read about it in the paper. Sorry!
