Charlie was a soldier on the run
It was just him and his gun
He fought all day for the British isles
From the morning to the setting sun
Hiding in a trench
He had to keep one eye on the sky
Living one with a shell-shocked mind
The battle drained him dry

Charlie was a victim

He held the Western front in France
Which he protected with his life
But his life soon came to an end
When he fell victim to the Kaiser's knife
Today we don't remember Charlie
But what he was fighting for
Taken from his family
And conscripted to the war

Charlie was a victim

Charlie was a victim
