The American War Bride Experience

GI Brides of World War II

Audrey has supplied the verse called "Down Argentina Way". She said that somebody thought it up during the trip across.

Down Argentina Way

You'll find your life has begun
Upon a ship of fun,
The "Argentina".

You'll learn to walk on the deck
without breaking your neck,
On the "Argentina".

If you are ever sea-sick
Don't let it make you blue,
Go down to the dispensary
And they will see you through.

And when once more on the shore,
Your G.I. will impore,
How you been eh?
You'll say, the food was terrific,
The personnel fine,
You weren't a bit sea-sick the trip was divine,
You've learned to sway, the "Argentina" way!

Do you remember this verse being sung?
