A Soldier’s Life From Childhood To Death.

Harry seeing Red

In the kitchen in his dressing gown
Waiting for mum and dad to come down
Put the kettle on made a pot of tea
Told them both “now listen to me
I don’t care what you’ve got to say
Y’see i’ve just got to get away
There ain’t no jobs here anyway
I can’t stand those games you play
Not since you turned my girl away
Grandad wins i’m joining up today
Joining up, joining up
I’m joining up today
Joining up, joining up
I’ll get a job with pay
I’m joining up today
I’m joining up today
You turned my girl away
Now i’m joining up today
