I Am In The Army Soon - Poem by Roger Bewman

A vacation to a foreign land
Uncle John does the best he can
I am joining the army soon
Oh, oh, I'll be in the army soon
Now I remember what the milkman said
Nothing to do all day but stay in bed
I am joining the army soon
Oh, oh, I'll be in the army soon

I'll be the weirdo of the neighbourhood
Nobody'll know that I'll be leaving soon
I am joining the army soon
Oh, oh, I'll be in the army soon

Smiling faces as I wait the bus
But once I get there no one'll give a toss
I am joining the army soon
Oh, oh, I'll be in the army soon

Hand grenades flying over my head
Missiles flying over my head
If I wish to survive I'll have to get out of bed
I am joining the army soon
Oh, oh, I'll be in the army soon

Shots ring out in the dead of night
The sergeant calls stand up and fight
I am joining the army soon
Oh, oh, I'll be in the army soon

I've got orders to better shoot on sight
My finger's on the trigger
But it doesn't seem right
I am joining the army soon
Oh, oh, I'll be in the army soon

I am joining the army soon
Oh, oh, I'll be in the army soon

Night is falling and you just can't see
Is this illusion or reality
I am joining the army soon
Oh, oh, I'll be in the army soon
I am joining the army soon
Oh, oh, I'll be in the army soon


(Original lyrics from Status Quo of the song In the army now)
