I like noughts and crosses hangman
played a lot of that with the kids
makes me a bit nostalgic You don’t mind?
Only I don’t see them anymore
haven’t done for years I still think of them
as kids still they’re grown up now
probably got kids of their own
I get a card from my eldest at xmas
it cracks me up seeing her
handwriting I blame the wife don’t remember
hitting her I joined that fathers’ group
clambered about on rooftops a bit undignified
for a soldier I’ve calmed down now Needed to
I used to travel a lot Too much
Got up to some things I shouldn’t of
specially for a soldier Word got around
In ’98 or maybe ’97 I passed out on parade
dropped my gun Everyone was kind
For a while I really tried You believe me?
And then there was the drink Still is
I’m not boring you? Only I miss my mates
in the guard miss my kids miss Janey
Did I tell you I had to go away for a bit?
I used to love that bearskin
