Sailors and Soldiers Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Sailors and soldiers
uniformed shoulders
they're growing older
over the sea
Verse 2
The troops they are leaving
firmly believing
no reason for greiving
Verse 3
Far from the banners,
Far from the glamour,
Far from the planners,
Who sent them to die
Verse 4
herded like cattle
they head for the battle
their rifles will rattle
over the sea
Verse 5
Too young to be shaving
yet the flags they are waving
for the fury they are braving
over the sea
Verse 6
proudly parading
with their medals they are
but their glory is fading
over the sea
Verse 7
Sailors and soldiers
Sailors and soldiers
Sailors and soldiers
