"Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive". The music was written by Harold Arlen and the lyrics by Johnny Mercer. It wasn't a song about the war, but it was written during the war.

YouTube - Anne Shelton - I'll be Seeing You - 1944

(There will be) Bluebirds over the White Cliffs of Dover.

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
