They called his name when he was 18.
He couldn't wait to go.
He knew that there was glory waiting, he knew all there
was to know.
So when they called his name he joined the line.
Turned into a number, got tickets for the show.
Eyes front join the line he signed his name, faded into
Got seats in the front row.
He knew it would be high adventure, a big pub brawl in
He'd come home to a heroes welcome, he knew the time
But then three days forced march later through the debris
all his preconceptions blown away into nightmare.
So when they called his name he joined the line to do his
bit for king & country,
took the shilling, sang the songs, took the tin hat and
Got seats in the front row. Correct these lyrics
