happy soldier lyrics – keane

i’ve been thinking
why don’t we
jump onboard some gunship
and sail away to sea

and if i’m seized by enemy
of any kind
i don’t mind
they’ll be sorry
wait and see
the sas will rescue me

i’ve been thinking
i’m so bored
what a life to live and die
by the silver sword

and if i’m crashed on stormy seas
the darkness falls and all i see
is a desert island
that’s ok
i’ll use the stars to find my way
if i’m drifting to no-man’s land
ghq will lend a hand
and there’s nothing king and country wouldn’t do for me
