Harry seeing Red

Grandad was a sergeant major
In the brigade of guards
Fought in world war 11
Had a chest full of medals
Silver cups for shooting
Photographs galore
Our little soldier
Was the apple of his eye
His only son had died
Run down by a car
When he was just thirteeen
Our litlle soldier took his place
Sergeant major grandad
Had a dream
Sergeant major grandad
Dreamed his dream
He told special stories
About being brave
Looking out for buddies
How to dig a grave
Riding camels in the desert
Drinking foreign beer
Hiding behind ivy
Whilst the enemy’s near
Seeing the wide world
Conquering his fear
Playing pokey die
When the moon shines clear
Our little soldier
Learned a lot by his side
Our little soldier
Was with him when he died
Sergeant major grandad
Had a dream
Sergeant major grandad
Dreamed his dream
Sergeant major grandad
Saw a little soldier dream
