Central Point, Oregon, Thursday, May 10, 1917
Old Kaiser Bill will get his fill
Before the war is o’er.
And it won’t be Allies only
Who are looking for his gore.
His subjects who have starved and
To satisfy his greed,
Are finding that by doing so
They’re very much in need.
But when they finally wake up
And find they have a will,
"Twill be an end to Tyranny
And likewise Kaiser Bill.
As soon as this car happen
In that poor war-suffering land.
Among the nations of the earth,
She'll once more take her stand.
For it’s not the German people
That the Allies fight against;
It’s Militarism and the thing it rep
So all the Allied nations
Will fight, and fight to kill.
Until the German people get rid
of Kaiser Bill.
