It's not hard to reach back to the day
Underneath that Iowa sun
Running to the tower of Waterloo
Looking for the Sullivan train to come
And his five boys would run to the top
Salute him as he went by
First we'd wave hello
Then we'd wave goodbye
It's not hard to reach back to the days
After the attack on Pearl
And overnight my buddies turned into men
Running out of time for games and girls
And the Sullivan Boys were not over looked
The very next day they left
On a mystery train
So say goodbye, bye, bye Mrs. Sullivan
Don't you cry, cry, cry, cry, cry
We regret to inform you
That the Navy is keeping your sons away
All five, five, five, five
So keep your blue star in the window
It's not hard to reach back to her smile
When she received the letter
In their letters they sounded generally the same
They said they couldn't be home
At least they were together
On a mighty, fighting battleship
Somewhere in the South Pacific
No their letters never got more specific
So say goodbye, bye, bye Mrs. Sullivan
Don't you cry, cry, cry, cry, cry
We regret to inform you
That the Navy is keeping your sons away
All five, five, five, five
So keep your blue star in the window
Its not hard to reach back to the day
When the war finally came home
Uncle Samuel sends you a telegram
So he doesn't have to tell you over the phone
I heard she cracked when they found out
What a war had cost
When all five of her boys were lost
Say goodbye, bye, bye Mrs.Sullivan
Don't you cry
Oh, go ahead and cry
You see, we regret to inform you
That your sons have passed away
All five, five, five, five
So change your blue star to gold
Blue star to gold
Change them to gold
