I'm enlisting, overseas aid
Need assisting, help with a maid
Get the expert, on mademoiselles
He could diffuse, any bombshell

If I could only be tough like him
Then I could win
My own, small, battle of the sexes

Sgt. Rock is going to help me
Make the girl mine
Keep her stood in line
Sgt. Rock is going to help me
Make the girl mine
Keep her stood in line
Make the girl mine, wave the victory sign

I'm invading, territories
Girls are foreign, and strange to me
Get the expert, at kissing and stuff
He stays easy, when things get rough

Sometimes relationships don't go as planned
Some girls, can make themselves so cold
A no-mans land.
