Description

Sheet music for the song, 'Good-Bye-Eee'. This song was written and composed by R.P. Weston and Bert Lee. This copy was published by Francis, Day & Hunter in 1917, and performed by Miss Daisy Wood, Miss Florrie Forde and Charles Whittle. The lyrics of 'Good-Bye-Eee' describe exaggerated goodbyes exchanged between soldiers leaving for war and people at home.
This copy of the music originally belonged to Private Ernest Alfred Nicholls and features his name at the top of the front cover. It is part of a collection of sheet music that was donated to the Memorial in 1971, and is symbolic of the concerts, theatre and other musical performances that Australian soldiers took in whilst on leave in London during the First World War.
