Dire straits
brothers in arms
soldier boy soldier boy
called to bear arms 

 

Nineteen fifteen pa rum pa pum pum a boy and his drum
do they know its Christmas oh what’s the use
soldier boy soldier boy
don’t despair remember the Christmas day truce

 

Hemmed in the trenches
muddied and soiled
soldier boy soldier boy
oh how you toiled

 

Nineteen sixteen battle of the Somme
swords, gunpowder, stones
soldier boy soldier boy
will you ever go home?

 

Not a birdsong in the fields
they’ve taken flight
soldier boy soldier boy
they flew off in the night

 

Nineteen seventeen the fourth rider
enthroned upon galloping war horse
soldier boy soldier boy
oh what a force

 

Month eleven @ hour eleven of the eleventh day 
prayers were answered for all those who did pray
soldier boy soldier boy
though you never saw that day

 

Nineteen eighteen laid to rest in an unmarked grave
though they say you didn’t die in vain
soldier boy soldier boy
you don’t have a name

 

And now the year of now red poppies of Flanders
red poppy pick a petal off
soldier boy soldier boy
forget you forget you not
