Directed by John Irvin "Haunted me" You poor dear! Must be dreadful for you. With an eye to the US box office. Wonder if due regard will be given to the Polish troops who took a large part in the operation? The D-Day Dodgers Tune: Lili Marlene (Just a few verses from one of several versions) We're the D-Day dodgers Here in Italy Drinking all the vino, Always on a spree. Eighth Army scroungers and their tanks, We go to war in ties like swanks. We are the D-Day Dodgers, Way out in Italy We landed in Salerno, A holiday with pay, The Jerries brought the band out To greet us on the way. Showed us the sights and gave us tea, We all sang songs, the beer was free To welcome D-Day Dodgers, To sunny Italy. Salerno and Cassino We're takin' in our stride We didn't go to fight there, We went there for the ride Anzio and Sanzio were just names, We only went to look for dames, The artful D-Day Dodgers, Out here in Italy. Look around the mountains In the mud and rain You'll find scattered crosses, Some which bear no name. Heart break and toil and suffering gone The boys beneath them slumber on, For they're the D-Day Dodgers, Who stayed in Italy.
