Soldier Boy

SOLDIER BOY

Come, they told him, Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
The war drums call for you, Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
Your country has need of you Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
It’s the right thing to do
Pah rum-pum-pum-pum, rum pum-pum-pum, rum pum-pum-pum
All…you need to do Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
Is shoulder this gun.

Come, they told him. Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
We’ll pay you cash up front Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
The enemy to confront Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
Come join our glorious hunt
Pah rum-pum-pum-pum, rum pum-pum-pum, rum pum-pum-pum
Be…one of the few Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
Who never will run.

So, he fought for them Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
So many years of war Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
Anguished and heartsore Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
What was he fighting for?
Pah rum-pum-pum-pum, rum pum-pum-pum, rum pum-pum-pum
They…taught him new skills Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
He learned how to kill.

He heard them talk of peace Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
While he saw atrocities Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
Crimes against humanity Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
Torture with immunity
Pah rum-pum-pum-pum, rum pum-pum-pum, rum pum-pum-pum
He watched so many die Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
And learned not to cry.

No more, he told them Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
Looking out from dead eyes Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
He asked them why they lied Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
Challenged them to deny
Pah rum-pum-pum-pum, rum pum-pum-pum, rum pum-pum-pum
He turned his back on them Pah rum-pum-pum-pum
And threw down his gun…
Rum pum pum pum….
Rum…pum…pum…pum……
