We were ordered by military law  
To elope, even before our boat had hit the shore  
The bullets knocked us about, thats for sure  
Dead cobbers scattered adrift, from the infantrys 1st corp  
Now some mates from my own platoon, 1, 2, 3 now 4  
Nobody should ever have to witness such gore  
Did not matter if you were rich or poor  
You were just a target, in this almighty war  
If the politicians demanded, they would easily send more  
Finally, the west encircled the mad beast, with a rambunctious roar  
But they let the Reds go forth, who savaged all the women, like a wild boar  
What was the main aim and what was the true meaning, deep down at its core, for this unholy friggin’ war?
