(UB40)


È il brano che dà il titolo al secondo album degli UB40, datato 1981. Potrebbe anche essere un proclama militarista, ma considerato che si tratta degli UB40 e che il brano successivo "Sardonicus", pare sia dedicato a Ronald Reagan...

You got no job you got no pay
Join the military, sign today
They`ll take you off to fight on foreign shores

You`ll be your mother`s pride and joy
Her armed and dangerous golden boy
A uniformed hero that shows no fear

The khaki ranks of flesh and steel
Learning how to smile and kill
They`ll teach you to ignore the screams and tears
