Part Time Soldier

(lyrics Karl Allison/music Marc Harry)

 

Hes a part time soldier but he doesnt want to win the war.

He doesnt like the fighting or know what hes fighting for.

Hes a part time soldier and he loves to wear his uniform

But he backs away from danger and he shivers in the storm...

 

Run away !

You never stay !

You missed the whole !

Every soul a battlefield !

 

Hes a part time soldier but hes never even shot to kill.

Hes only in the Army because hes got some hours to kill.

Hes a part time soldier but he doesnt want to get involved.

He thinks if he looks important all his problems will be solved...

 

Run away !

You never stay !

You missed the whole !

Every soul a battlefield !

 

There is a time that will come when all our enemies are strong

And we will be rejected and accused.

In that day we must stand tall - in that day well need to heed the battle-call

And none of us can be excused.

ARE YOU READY ?

 

Hes a part time soldier but when the bullets start to fly

He loses motivation and he doesnt even try.

Hes a part time soldier but his image comes before the fight

And Satan must be looking on and laughing at the sight !

 

Run away !

You never stay !

You missed the whole !

Every soul a battlefield !

 

ARE YOU READY ?
