The army has taught me a lot about life
I know now that everything will always be right
With everybody’s notions of what I am
Cause they don’t know

And they don’t see
That I am
A man
Yes I am
I’m a one man killing machine

Right hand it contains an M16
The other hand it contains fresh canteen
I can go out there and do what I please
If they would let me then they would see

That I am
A man
Yes I am
I’m a one man killing machine

Doesn’t mean
That what they say say say
It’s all right
What they say say say
Don’t believe what they say say say
It’s all lies what they say say say
Don’t believe what they say say say
It’s all lies what they say say say
Don’t believe a word they say say say
It’s all right what I say


The army has taught me a lot about life

    General CommentAside from the initial meaning, I think there is supposed to be a bit of irony. ex:
    "I am a one man killing machine" ... "the army has taught me a lot about life"
