go and join the army

said the father to the son

see the world around you boy

and learn to use a gun

think you're something special

well, we'll make you just the same

there's nothing wrong in dying

after all, it's just a game

- just a game.

read the morning paper

there's a picture of a cross

"we were proud in them days"

by the way, i think you lost

trust me when i tell you boy

that god is on our side

even jesus cheers us on

against the other side

- against the other side.

he who shouts the loudest

is the one who's in control

we who never listen

are the ones who pay the toll

tell us that it's time at last

to make a final stand

i'm glad 'cos all i wanted

was to kill another man

- just to kill another man.
