"Corporal Chalkie" as written by and Mekons....
Lying in bed with my girl from Sussex
Reading the writings of a man from Kent

And the earth in the garden gets blacker
Just another war we say

I’m the man from Surrey with a ground floor flat
And I know what happened before I was born

The huns and the nips got uppy with blighty
And tommy went out and beat them all home

Running for breakfast with my call up forms
Seeing the sniper and the bullets in my arms

And the great big bloke from platoon thirty two
Is calling me a poof and a stream of number two
