"Private John Q" as written by and Miller....
Well I read it in the papers and I see it on the television
Everybody's worried about world war three
Here I am a single boy, unemployed and everything
Somebody better stop and worry about me

Well can't you just see me now chin up and chest out
A hup-2-3-4 all day through
Everybody seems to be worried about something or other
Who's gonna worry about private john q

Sometimes I get disheartened I try not to even think about it
Heaven knows it's hard to keep from lettin' it get me down
But I'll stand proud when everybody else'll be
A-runnin' helter skelter for the shelter underground


When I was a little boy I used to sit and dream of travellin'
To lots of foreign countries on sight-seeing tours
The way it's looking now I can stop saving money
Maybe go free, sponsored by the third world war

[Chorus: x2]
