  • We'll meet again
    Don't know where
    Don't know when
    But I know we'll meet again some sunny day
    Keep smiling through
    Just like you always do
    'Till 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

    We'll meet again
    Don't know where
    Don't know when
    But I know we'll meet again some sunny day
    Keep smiling 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 it won't be long
    They'll be happy to know
    That as you saw me go
    I was singin' this song

    We'll meet again
    Don't know where
    Don't know when
    But I know we'll meet again some sunny day Writer/s: Hughie Charles, Ross Parker

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyPer: www.legacy.com {06-19-2020}...
    Vera Lynn died at her home in Sussex, England on June 18th, 2020 at the age of 103...
    Born Vera Margaret Welch in London March 20, 1917, she took her grandmother’s last name, Lynn, when she began her performing career. That career was at its height during World War II, when her sweetly sentimental songs touched the hearts of servicemen and folks on the home front alike...
    Lynn’s song “We’ll Meet Again” was released in 1939 and came to represent the bond between soldiers and their families for many in England and beyond. “White Cliffs of Dover” was another wartime hit, as was “There’ll Always Be an England.” The popularity of these hits led English service members to vote Lynn as their favorite musician in a 1939 poll, leading to her nickname the Forces’ Sweetheart...
    May she R.I.P.
  • Magoo from Midwest Usamy first "exposure" to her / first time hearing her name was while listening to Pink Floyd; being a Floyd geek I had to know who Roger Waters was referring to..........
  • Brian from La Mesa, CaThis song closed Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove or: How I Stopped Worrying and Loved the Bomb, bringing a poignant and introspective end to that black comedy. As of this writing (Nov 2019), Vera Lynn is still living in Sussex at the age of 102.
  • Teresa from Mechelen, BelgiumDame Vera Lynn a great lady, beautiful songs. I have the album released in 2009 and it will always be a joy for me listening to Vera Lynn. These songs are everlasting.
  • Zabadak from London, EnglandAlso parodied by ex-Traffic man, Jim Capaldi, as Whale Meat Again for an LP title!
