Wegrowbeards / Young Attenborough Split
A gift of a white feather so your cowardice should never go unnoticed by your neighbours or your kin.
There’s a war on son, so go grab your gun without spilling Europe’s blood how will we win?

Be it moral implications or religious indignations, neither’s gonna stand up to the test.
What right do you think you have to avoid a national draft? England kills her sons with the best.

Objection! Emotion overruled.
Keep your feelings to yourself cos we’re ignoring you.
England’s gripped in war fever hence,
You can die in Flanders’ fields with the rest.

Fighting in France in ’16 and the ranks are running thin so we’re recruiting with the bachelor’s bill.
But you could work at home or rot in a prison with your lot, must be a coward if you don’t want to kill.

And your lofty dreams of fighting for the glory
Have drowned with your pals in the mud.
It is just another war story.
And you’re swallowed by the fire and the blood.
