lyrics

I'll tell them that I stood there in the trenches every day
Cos every pretty girl she loves a soldier
How I'd pick them off until they all turned round and ran away
Cos every pretty girl she loves a soldier

I won't tell them that I really spent the war
Wheeling barrows round a store
And when I'd finished... wheel some more
And count the days away, or
How I was happy with my lot
There was the one time that I got
A little muddy playing football

I'll tell them how in uniform, well, I cut quite a dash
Cos every pretty girl she loves a soldier
How I'd sneek behind the German lines and tweek the Kaiser's tache
Cos every pretty girl she loves a soldier

I won't tell them that my Daddy pulled some strings
And had me stationed in the wings
Away from any of such things
And made the war a stranger
Or how I never had a gun
Or walked into that July sun
I never was in any danger

But every pretty girl she loves a soldier
