Frank E Gibbard
London, England
2005

You may have failed at school
We suspect you're no-one's fool,
Do you know you'd look really cool
With a uniform on?

You'll have glorious good days
In a job that really pays,
If you've patriotic ways
Come and join the fun.

You know what's really keen
You'll be fighting for the Queen,
And have boots so shiny clean
And your own private gun.

You may have a good career
It may last many a year,
There remains one major fear
You may end up dead old son.
