Time with my girl, I spent it well
I had to be strong for my woman
She says, you must be joking, oh man
You must be joking, she needed to be protected

The good life was so elusive
Handouts, they got me down
I had to regain my self-respect
So, I got into camouflage

The girls, they love to see you shoot
I love a man in a uniform
I love a man in a uniform
I love a man in a uniform
I love a man in a uniform

To have ambition was my ambition
Time with my girl, I spent it well
You must be joking, oh man, you must be joking

The good life was so elusive
Handouts, they got me down
I had to regain my confidence
So, I got into camouflage

The girls, they love to see you shoot
I love a man in a uniform
I love a man in a uniform
I love a man in a uniform
I love a man in a uniform

I need an order, shoot
I need an order, shoot
I need an order, shoot
I need an order

To have ambition was my ambition
Time with my girl, I spent it well
You must be joking, oh man, you must be joking

The girls, they love to see you shoot
The girls, they love to see you shoot
I love a man in a uniform
I love a man in a uniform
I love a man in a uniform

The girls, they love to see you shoot
I love a man in a uniform
The girls, they love to see you shoot
I love a man in a uniform

The girls, they love to see you shoot
I love a man in a uniform
The girls, they love to see you shoot
I love a man in a uniform
The girls, they love to see you shoot
