Nineteen Sixteen
I answered the green
Four years later I dressed in Tan
I squandered my life
As I lived and I died
For a narrow strip of land
I bombed Berlin
And Plymouth Hoe
I dropped napalm on Mai Lai
I've raped, I've killed, I've murdered and maimed
I've dug the shallow graves

So somebody tell me
Why do I carry on singing soldiers songs

I've stood my ground in a thin red line
I lead the tribesman's charge
I've thrown my life away for every cause
Beneath Gods stars
I've died at sea and deep underground
I've fallen burning from the sky
If there's a cause, I'll head the call
And I'll be the first one to die


So somebody tell me
Why do I carry on singing soldiers songs

Na na na na na na na
Still we carry on
Singing soldiers songs

Fuck you fuck you fuck you
I wont carry on
I'll sing no more soldiers songs...
