This filk is on the tape Some Dreams Are Worth Having
by Judith Proctor
tune: ? (I may have actually invented this one...)
Come and join the army, boys! We're going to have some fun,
Get yourself a helmet and a great big para-gun,
In your dark black uniform, you're feeling eight feet tall,
We are the boys to beat them all!
Come and join the space force, and exceed the speed of light,
Boy you ain't seen nothing 'till you see pursuit ships fight,
Rebels start a-fleeing at the first shot from our gun,
We are the boys to make them run!
Come and see some action, lad, and fight the alien war,
I've seen a million of 'em, and maybe somewhat more,
Don't be a civilian, cowering in a dome,
We are the boys to send them home!
Come and be a trooper, lad; the social life is great.
If you don't believe me, come and ask me mate,
There's lots of pretty women, in every port of call,
We are the boys to have them all!
Come and join the army, boys; let's have another drink,
Here's the one profession, where you never have to think,
The landlords never throw us out in case we start a fight,
We'll stay drinking all the night!
