BOY SOLO 

Non nobis solum 
Sed toti mundo nati, 
Toti mundo nati. 

BOYS' CHOIR 
Non nobis solum 
Sed toti mundo nati. 

CHORUS 
(Ah), Ah 

SHANTY 
The air raid siren slices through 
A night in 1942. 
A couple sheltering in the gloom 
Know all too well this waiting room 
For often they have in the past 
Been huddled close against the blast 
Of doodle bugs and bombs galore, 
They can't put up with any more. 
So it was that I was born 
Into this world one summer morning 
And breaking through this brand new day 
I hear the sound of warning. 

CHORUS 
(War, Ah) 

SHANTY 
Oh will it all end here? 
Or is their future round the corner? 
You'll be forgiven if you're down on your knees. 
What will it be what will it? 
What will we be what will we? 
What will we see what will we see? 

They stay in darkness underground 
Until they hear the All Clear sound 
And weary eyes will search the sky 
For any sign of sunlight. 
For any sign of sunlight. 

CHORUS 
Mother and father holding their child, 
Not knowing what future magic lies inside. 
We open our hearts, 
You open the door 
To peace and happiness for evermore, 
For us for evermore.
