Rob 'em All (NAAFI) We are the NAAFI girls, warriors all The RASC/EFI, Heavily laden with ill-gotten gains We came here to do, not to die. Once we were honest, but those days are gone The NAAFI has been our downfall; We'll get no promotion this side of the ocean Lets make what we can --- rob 'em all! cho: Rob 'em all, rob 'em all The long and the short and the tall, Rob every sergeant and WO/1 Rob every corporal, show favour to none Oh, we'll rob every private in call. We'd even rob General de Gaulle Our graft's systematic and quite democratic Show favour to none, rob 'em all. We came out to Egypt to sell cups of tea To charge half an acker's a shame, There's some like it strong and there's some like it weak But they all get it served up the same. We're free with hot water, but tight with the tea The mixture's too feeble to crawl. We always rake off it at least half the profit Show favour to none, rob 'em all. Our rissoles are famous from Cairo to Cape We serve them from morning to night; We serve them to servicemen serving abroad If they eat them it just serves them right. We serve them with vigor, we serve them with vim We serve them with might and with main; Then we scrape up the drips of the rissoles and chips And we hash 'em and serve 'em again. From Kiss me Goodnight Sergeant-Major, (Author Unknown to RG) Note: reportedly refers to girls behind the counter in the NAAFI accounts department during WWII, Ismaila, near the Suez Canal. RG
