(LyricFind)

There’ll be bluebirds over

The white cliffs of Dover

Tomorrow, just you wait and see

There’ll be love and laughter

And peace ever after

Tomorrow, when the world is free

The shepherd will tend his sheep

The valley will bloom again

And Jimmy will go to sleep

In his own little room again

There’ll be bluebirds over

The white cliffs of Dover

Tomorrow, just you wait and see

The shepherd will tend his sheep

The valley will bloom again

And Jimmy will go to sleep

In his own little room again

There’ll be bluebirds over

The white cliffs of Dover

Tomorrow, just you wait and see
