General's War

 

words and music written by Richard Duddle and Bryn Gater copyright control 1985

  • He’s just a private in a general’s war
    He’s seventeen but he knows the score
    Lives with the bombs
    The bullets and the rest
    Takes his orders dons his battle dress
    Dons his battle dress
     
    Those generals got no reason
    To legalise their fun
    Those sadists hooked on killin’
    Yeah worship the gun
     
    It’s sad but inevitable in a way
    They run the gauntlets on apocalypse day
    Try to get home
    But it isn’t there
    No one can help them with their total
    Total despair
     
    Those generals got no reason
    To legalise their fun
    Those sadists hooked on killin’
    Yeah worship the gun
     
    He’s just a private in a general’s war
    He’s seventeen but he knows the score
     
    Those generals got no reason
    To legalise their fun
    Those sadists hooked on killin’
    Yeah worship the gun
     
    It's a General's War
