We'll Meet Again is a love song made famous by the late British singer Vera Lynn (1917-2020) with music and lyrics by Ross Parker and Hughie Charles. It was one of the most famous songs during the World War II era, and it resonated with the soldiers of the Second World War to fight for their families and sweethearts. The song has a long history of being performed in film and television, most significantly in Dr. Strangelove.

Bill Cipher performs a segment of the song in Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls.

History

Bill Playing We'll Meet Again on his piano

In "Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls," Bill unfreezes Ford Pines after having turned him to gold and brought him to the Fearamid in the previous episode. Upon unfreezing him, Bill rises out of the floor playing a piano and singing a brief section of the song.

Lyrics

We'll meet again,
Don't know where, don't know when,
But I know we'll meet again, some sunny day.

Rest of the song (not sung in the series)

Keep smiling through
Just like you always do
Till the blue skies clear the dark clouds far away.

So won't you please say hello
To the friends that I know.
Say that I won't be long.
You'll be happy to know
That as you saw me go,
I was singing this song.

Oh, we'll meet again,
Don't know where, don't know when,
But I know we'll meet again, some sunny day.

Spanish Version

"Yo te vére,"
"Donde y mas, no lo sé,"
"Solo se que pronto yo, te encontrarte."

Trivia

  • Stan Pines sings this at the last message of the Cipher Hunt.
  • In the Cantonese Chinese, German, and Thai versions of "Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls," The song was not dubbed and was left in English. The reasons for not dubbing it are unknown, but it is suspected that it was not dubbed in the German version due to problems with the song not sounding correct
  • During MomoCon 2017, Alex Hirsch revealed during a guest video chat appearance that Disney originally wanted to cut the song out of the episode due to how much it was costing to get the rights to use it. He would keep sending them emails with just the word "Please" and "Yeah" to get them to reconsider until they finally were worn down and responded with, "alright we’ll spend thousands of dollars."[3]
