Lyrics

(B.F.P.O)
(Mammy's hero)

Our little army boy
Is coming home from B.F.P.O.

I've a bunch of purple flowers
To decorate a mammy's hero.

Mourning in the aerodrome
The weather warmer, he is colder.

Four men in uniform
To carry home my little soldier.

"What could he do?
Should have been a rock star."
But he didn't have the money for a guitar.

"What could he do?
Should have been a politician."
But he never had a proper education.

"What could he do?
Should have been a father."
But he never even made it to his twenties.

What a waste
Army dreamers.
Oh, what a waste
Army dreamers.

Tears o'er a tin box.
Oh, Jesus Christ, he wasn't to know
Like a chicken with a fox

He couldn't win the war with ego.
Give the kid the pick of pips
And give him all your stripes and ribbons.
Now he's sitting in his hole

He might as well have buttons and bows.
"What could he do?
Should have been a rock star."
But he didn't have the money for a guitar.
"What could he do?
Should have been a politician."
But he never had a proper education.
"What could he do?
Should have been a father."
But he never even made it to his twenties.
What a waste
Army dreamers.
Oh What a waste of
Army dreamers.
Oh What a waste of
Army dreamers.
Army dreamers.

Army dreamers.
Do-de-do-de-do-de-doh.
(B.F.P.O.)
Yea-de-do de-de-do-do.

(Mammy's hero)

Do-de-do-de-do-de-doh.

(Army Dreamers)

Yea-de-do de-de-do-do.
(Mammy's hero)
Do-de-do-de-do-de-doh.
Yea-de-do de-de-do-do.
(B.F.P.O)
Do-de-do-de-do-de-doh.
(Army Dreamers)
Yea-de-do de-de-do-do.
(Mammy's hero)
(B.F.P.O)
(No hard heros)
(Mammy's hero)
(B.F.P.O)
(Army Dreamers)
(Mammy's hero)
(B.F.P.O)
(No hard heros)
