Keep the Home Fires Burning

Keep the home fires burning,
While your hearts are yearning,
Though your lads are far away
They dream of home.
There's a silver lining
Through the dark cloud shining,
Turn the dark cloud inside out
'Til the boys come home.

A popular song in World War I.
The lyrics are by Lena Ford and the music by Ivor Novello.
Story of Keeping the "Home Fires Burning" : During World War I, soldiers relied on their wives and sweethearts to keep the home fires burning (keeping the homes in order) when they marched off to war.
