Rookie (That old my birth certs is expired / Glasgow)

Remember Them


We will remember them
The day they left home
They went to foreign lands
Some never came home

For those that had nothings the same
Some did come home and have been maimed
Not all in the body but some in the head
So many people they have seen dead

So the next time you see it all on TV
Please think of them and the family
If it wasn’t for them were would we be
The country would be run by anarchy

Freedom of speech that’s what we have
From our brave armed forces land sea or air
You fight for our rights do you know that we care
Without you what would we do?
I take my hat of to all of you
