Blaze Away - Lyrics

Lyrics by Irish-born Jimmy Kennedy:

We’ll make a bonfire of our troubles and we’ll watch them blaze away
And when they’ve all gone up in smoke clouds,
We’ll never worry should they come another day
And as the bonfire keeps on burning,
Happy days will be returning,
While the band keeps playing
We’ll let our troubles blaze away

Here we are, there’s work to do,
And don’t let troubles trouble you.
Bring them along and we’ll burn them up,
bring them along and we’ll burn them up ha ha, ha hey

Start and throw them right into the fire
Watch the flames go higher and higher
Blazing away, blazing away, oh, come along bring your worries round today.

We’ll make a bonfire of our troubles and we’ll watch them blaze away
And when they’ve all gone up in smoke clouds,
We’ll never worry should they come another day
And as the bonfire keeps on burning,
Happy days will be returning,
While the band is playing
We’ll let our troubles blaze away.

Blaze Away

I remember this from my days as a brass player in a marching band. There is an excellent counter-melody writen for the Euphonium!
