A Soldier’s Life From Childhood To Death.

Harry seeing Red

It was xmas morning
The sun sparkled on the snow
He was five years old
The pillow case was bulging
At the end of his bed
With the bright wrapped presents
He was so excited
Could harldy wait to open them
His mother had the idea
Whilst she was shopping downtown
In the newsagent window
They were displaying toys for boys
A sign caught her eye
All you need for your little soldier
She was so inspired
All she could think of was he”s
Our little soldier
Our little soldier
He’s our little soldier boy
She got all the family
To buy all the different bits of kit
She wrapped them up
Whilst drinking wine on christmas eve
Her little soldier
Opened them one by one by one
The boots, the helmet
The uniform, grenades and the gun
He dressed himself up
And ran on down to breakfast
Everyone was laughing
As he marched round and round the room
Saluted everybody
Went on manouvres all around the house
Shooting at the tv
Crawling and hiding, blowing up the dog
And his dad said
That’s
Our little soldier
Our little soldier
He’s our little soldier boy
