You got no job you got no pay
Join the military, sign today
They'll take you off to fight on foreign shores

You'll be your mother's pride and joy
Her armed and dangerous golden boy
A uniformed hero that shows no fear

The khaki ranks of flesh and steel
Learning how to smile and kill
They'll teach you to ignore the screams and tears
