"This Phoney War" as written by and Morrison....
Maybe if I had the money
I would buy myself out of the army
I'd grow my hair and be back there with you

To love you and protect you
From all the scum who are out to get you
I'm far away but I won't forget you

You know I love you only
I hate to leave you lonely
But I have to fight this phoney war

I was just a kid when I signed up
Barely old enough to make my own mind up
I didn't think that one day I would wind up

As a part of the liberation
Or a soldier of occupation
Angel of mercy or spawn of Satan
I don't know but

You know I love you only
And I hate to leave you lonely
But I have to fight this phoney war

I'll try to keep my head down
I won't stray too far from the compound
Honey, it won't be too long now

When I can give you love and protection
And be a father to the child you're expecting
I'll meet you by the memorial they're erecting
For this phoney war
