Devil Has Bought Up All The Coal, The (1918)

[1st verse:]

Ev'ryone's hollering "Me oh my

We're in a terrible hole"

Ev'ryone's hollering "Tell us why

There is a shortage of coal"

I've got the whole thing figured out

Really it isn't so bad

I know the cause without a doubt

Why there's no coal to be had



[chorus:]

The devil has bought up all the coal

He's going to save it I swear

Until the Kaiser gets there

He needs to make it warm for Mister William

The devil has spent his little roll

For all the coal from ev'rywhere

He's piling it up by the ton

And, oh, what he'll do to that Hun

There'll be a hot time in Hades

When the Kaiser gets there



[2nd verse:]

Satan is freezing 'way down below

He feels a terrible chill

Still he won't use up his coal, oh no

Satan is waiting for Bill

If he can stand it then why can't we?

Tell all the grumblers to pause

Although we freeze, let's shout with glee

"It's for a wonderful cause"



[2nd chorus:]

The devil has bought up all the coal

He's going to save it I swear

Until the Kaiser gets there

He needs to make it warm for Mister William

I'd give Mister Rockefeller's roll

To see the Kaiser I declare

And whisper in his little ear

You don't know the half of it, dear

There'll be a hot time in Hades

When the Kaiser gets there
