lyrics

There’s a storm over Europe
There’s a storm in your heart
And you’re hanging round nightclubs
Cos you want to be part, be part of it.
And you mother don’t like it
Cos she’s seen you around
And you work in munitions
And you keep the country moving, moving

Oh, you never told me
You were a Forces Darling
From the factory to the dancefloor
In the 1940s

It’s a kitchen sink drama
But the plot’s wearing thin
And the boys have got nylon
So you want to get in, get in with them.

Oh, you never told me
You were a Forces Darling
From the factory to the dancefloor
In the 1940s
Before I met you
You cut your fringe tight, just like Veronica
That was just a publicity stunt
For the girls back home

I saw you walk under moonlight
Clutching a rose in your hand
Arm in arm with some guy from Connecticut
Mayflower Star
With a tear in your eye
Brass buttons and shiny things
You were so easily bought

Everything you dream of, I already possess

Oh, you never told me
You were a Forces Darling
From the factory to the dancefloor
In the 1940s
Before I met you
You cut your fringe tight, just like Veronica
That was just a publicity stunt
For the girls back home
