We were the children of `45
We looked the enemy straight in the eye (And never surrender)
I go over the top time after time

As nations we're divided, but as people we are one

The order of battle is written in the shadows of a hard black line
And heros sleep beneath a blanket of stars

As nations we're divided, but as people we are one

Captain of the guard I'm coming in, Too Long, Too Long A Soldier

Eternal flames blow in the wind, I've been Too Long A Soldier
I've seen so much worth dying for, so little worth killing over

I've been Too Long A Soldier, Too Long, Too Long A Soldier

Eternal flames blow in the wind
My eyes have seen the glory of
Oh say can you see by the dawns early light
Oooh, Ooh, Ooh
