My name is Lilly, I'm nineteen years old
No money to study, no boyfriend, I'm kind of bored
I went to the trade fair to find a job
There I found a few guys from the army
They told me that I was smart and pretty

I'm going to war, I'm going to war, I'm going to war, I'm going to war, I'm going to war...
She's going to war, she's going to war, she's going to war, she's going to war, she's going to war...

My name is Lily, they told me that I could make it
They'll pay for my studies, so I will graduate
I went to the parking lot to meet with my recruiters
I leave next week, as I know, for four years

Six more months and I'll be ready to drive machines and to (M16?)
My name is Lily, I'm nineteen years old
Army (??) but I do what I'm told

I'm going to war, I'm going to war, I'm going to war, I'm going to war, I'm going to war...
She's going to war, she's going to war, she's going to war, she's going to war, she's going to war...
She's going to war, she's going to war, she's going to war, she's going to war, she's going to war...
She's going to war, she's going to war, she's going to war, she's going to war, she's going to war...
