Oh, I feel sympathy.
Be grateful my son for what you get.
Expression and passion.
Ten days for watching the sunset;

When I was your age
Amusement we made for ourselves.
"Permission to breathe sir,"
Don't talk like that, I'm your old man.

They'll soon be demobbed son,
So join up as soon as you can.
You can't borrow that
'Cause that's for the races
