"Soldier On" as written by and Rich/knowles Harrison....
here's to the lonely old soldiers
here's to the lonely old soldiers

going to walk into the street
with the confidence of an apex predator
im going to ask the first pretty girl i meet
if she fancies a trip to the west end cinema

oh will sit her in the back row
tell her what i know
listen to a whisper
share a shadow
We'll fall into line with the evening tide
Ready to present arms, open wide

all my best laid plans
they might have to wait till tomorrow
cos its been an hour since i took off
and there's no pretty girls to speak of
yeah right

oh well sit her in the back row
tell her what i know
listen to a whisper
share a shadow
when i marched round a corner into a post
what the hell am i dong, must admit that i dont know
oh i don't know

here's to the lonely old soldiers
here's to the lonely old soldiers

here's to the lonely old soldiers
raise them up
here's to the lonely old boys

oh well sit her in the back row
tell her what i know
listen to a whisper
share a shadow
well i'll sit her in the row
bare my soul
listen to a whisper
share a shadow
i don't know
oh i don't know
