Giovanissimo, Billy Connolly decise di entrare nella Territorial Army (TA), una sezione dell’esercito britannico costituita da civili volontari, “soldati della domenica” che si addestrano come forza supplementare in caso di diosolosaquale emergenza… Questa canzone è il resoconto della sua esperienza.
I am a weekend soldier
And the world is scared of me
I've fought a million battles
And I'm always home in time for tea

When I was just a spotty youth, and tired of being ignored
One day I said to myself, Iain, why are you so bored?
I wanted some adventure, some excitement and some power
So I went to the local Territorials, I joined within the hour

I am a weekend soldier
And the world is scared of me
I've fought a million battles
And I'm always home in time for tea

I've been in the army for some time now, even the sausages are nice
Hey, this is the way to see the world, boys - I've been to Edinburgh twice
And all you left-wing radicals, don't give me any of your cheek
And have your demonstration on a Saturday, for I have to work all the week

I am a weekend soldier
And the world is scared of me
I've fought a million battles
And I'm always home in time for tea

I've been in the army for three years now, I enjoy playing at the games
And when I put my uniform on I feel like big John Wayne
My camouflage jacket fits me perfectly but the trousers could be improved
I have to take three steps or more before they even start to move

I am a weekend soldier
And the world is scared of me
I've fought a million battles
And I'm always home in time for tea
