Best in this Army (16 Bn)

THE BEST IN THIS ARMY

We're all members of the Army Reserve,
Training at weekends, it's peace we preserve,
Part time soldiers, it's Australia we serve,
It's the land we live and love.

Sixteen Battalion is the best in this fair land,
It's history and tradition will forever ever stand;
To be a member of the unit really is so grand,
It's the best in this army.

At annual camp we work so hard, every night and day,
We soldier for Australia for very little pay,
In 16 days we're heading home, though we'd love to stay,
We really love Bindoon.

Every year on ANZAC Day, people cheer at me,
Marching down the Terrace, leading all the Company,
And I'm so proud to be in the Infantry,
I hold my head up high.

And when Australia's back, has been up against the wall,
Who are the people who answer every call,
Part time soldiers, who's deeds stand tall,
For we do win the wars.

We're all members if the Army reserve,
Training at weekends, it's peace we preserve,
Part time soldiers, it's Australia we serve,
In the good old INFANTRY.
