THEN THEY GAVE ME A MEDAL

They gave me a medal
That meant nofing ter me
Maybe worth
A pint ov beer a tot ov rum
Shot ov whiskey
When I get it sold!
Just being alive do me
Being alive when this foocking war is finally over
With me body in one piece - me mind not a scrambled egg
Will be my true award - awarded by chances ov Lady luck
No God involved!
