Army Dreamers Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
"B.F.P.O."
Army dreamers
"Mammy's hero"
"B.F.P.O."
"Mammy's hero"
Verse 2
Our little army boy
Is coming home from B.F.P.O.
I've a bunch of purple flowers
To decorate a mammy's hero
Verse 3
Mourning in the aerodrome
The weather warmer, he is colder
Four men in uniform
To carry home my little soldier
Verse 4
"What could he do?
Should have been a rock star"
But he didn't have the money for a guitar
"What could he do?
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
Verse 5
Tears o'er a tin box
Oh, Jesus Christ, he wasn't to know
Like a chicken with a fox
He couldn't win the war with ego
Verse 6
Give the kid the pick of pips
And give him all your stripes and ribbons
Now he's sitting in his hole
He might as well have buttons and bows
Verse 7
"What could he do?
Should have been a rock star"
But he didn't have the money for a guitar
"What could he do?
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
Ooh, what a waste of all that
Army dreamers
Army dreamers
Army dreamers, oh
Verse 8
"B.F.P.O."
Did-n-did-n-did-n-dum
Army dreamers
Did-n-did-n-did-n-dum
"Mammy's hero"
"B.F.P.O."
Army Dreamers
"Mammy's hero"
"B.F.P.O."
No harm heroes
"Mammy's hero"
"B.F.P.O."
Army dreamers.
"Mammy's hero"
"B.F.P.O."
No harm heroes
