Our little army boy

Is coming home from b.f.p.o.

Should have been a politician.

But he never had a proper education.

What could he do?

Should have been a father.

But he never even made it to his twenties.

What a waste --

Army dreamers.

Ooh, what a waste of

Army dreamers.

Give the kid the pick of pips,

And give him all your stripes and ribbons.

Now hes sitting in his hole,

He might as well have buttons and bows.

at the end of the second chorus, repeat G and Bm, and end on 224422.

The song goes on after the second chorus, but the chords are the same as in the verses.

Please leave constructive criticism, I am open to any modifications.
