All The Broken Soldiers

Ten years old an' playin' with toy soldiers in the mud
There's many fallen heroes but there isn't any blood
He watches old war movies on his black an' white tv
A soldier for his country is all he wants to be

An' all the broken soldiers don't get played with any more
He says a broken soldier ain't much use when you're playin' war

He grew up an' joined the army, went to Ireland young an' raw
Then they filled him full of chemicals, he fought the first Gulf war
While he served his country he got sick along with other troops
An' the Ministry denied it all sayin' there's no proof

An' all the broken soldiers are politely shown the door
They say a broken soldier ain't much use when you're fightin' wars

Now the years have passed an' ten more gone, our hero's on the streets
An' he's workin' real hard to survive, he finds enough to eat
But he's got his pride an' he won't beg no person round the town
Or the suits who cast him off adrift, without a float to drown

An' all the broken soldiers don't get played with any more
They say a broken soldier ain't much use when you're fightin' wars
