Lyrics

Telegraph Dada served in the Great War
A Hungarian battalion
The telegraph corps,
Telegraph Dada had just turned nineteen
The Italian theatre
So absurd and so mean.

Telegraph Dada in the Great War
The Italian theatre, a telegraph corps Ö

Telegraph Dada had luck on his side
Neither died in the trenches
Nor got buried alive,
Telegraph Dada got back in one piece
Didnít go gaga
Got his mind back at ease.

Telegraph Dada in the Great War
The Italian theatre, a telegraph corps Ö

Telegraph Dada mainly kept to himself
Had his own little workshop
Lots of tools on the shelves,
Thatís where he would hide
From the wide world outside
Quite happy to be
Far away in his dreams.

Telegraph Dada in the Great War
The Italian theatre, a telegraph corps Ö
