The basis for the jovial I'd Feel at Home if They'd Let me Join the Army was the sentiment that life would be somewhat easier - and more peaceful - on the front lines than at home in so-called "domestic tranquility"!

The song was written in 1917 by Albert Gumble (music) and Jack Mahoney (lyrics) and published by Jerome H. Remick.

Use the player above to listen to a version of the song performed by the prolific Billy Murray, recorded in 1917.

A "lazy liz" was a heavy artillery shell fired by the Allied battleship Queen Elizabeth.
