I've never met you, but I know your name
Engraved in stone on a foreign plain

Go on, blow your whistle
Go on, blow your whistle for me
Go on, blow your whistle
And send me over the top

Only 17 and ready for adventure
In a fancy uniform
You've played the games all right
But this was real life
Oh he never stood a chance no

Go on, blow your whistle
Go on, blow your whistle for me
Go on, blow your whistle
And send me over the top
I'm as good as gone
I'm as good as gone

Never forget, never forget
Never forget, never forget
Never forget, never forget
Never forget

Go on, blow your whistle
Go on, blow your whistle for me
Go on, blow your whistle

Go on, blow your whistle
Go on, blow your whistle for me
Go on, blow your whistle

And send me over the top

    General Commentwoahh! first comment. k. So I think this is about someone who likes someone else, but that someone else doesn't know who this person is. so sad. and "blow your whistle" means, "take notice of me" I guess...good song.

    General Commentit's about the world war, a whistle was blown 3 times to prepare the soldiers to go "over the top" of the trenches...

    think it's saying thank you and is sorry for what they gave up to go over the top to pretty much certain death!!!

    General Commentit was inspired during a school battlefields trip they went on about the world war. they decided not to put it on the album though cos its a bit cheesey i think.

    General CommentIt is about the Battle of the Somme during WWI. I've been on the same trip the writer had been on when he wrote the song. I went to the same school with the same teachers and this song was played to us by way of setting the scene.
