Northam Camp

Every day we're up at dawn
Half asleep and all forlorn
All we do is learn and test
All we want is a bloody rest

NORTHAM ONE - TWO
NORTHAM THREE - FOUR
NORTHAM CAMP ONE TWO
ONE - TWO ………THREE/FOUR

The cooks are feeding us the best
Still we get a pain in the chest
Every day it is the same
To eat it all you must be game

The sergeant was there on my left - YOUR RIGHT
The corporal was there on my left - YOUR RIGHT
All they do is scream and shout
All we want is a WAY OUT

We/They practice day we/they practice night
But still we/they are a terrible sight
We/They try and try with all our/their might
But never seem to get it right

What are we doing today - DON'T KNOW
Why are we here at all - DON'T KNOW
Must be more to life than this
Than drill parades and drinking piss

It's hurry up and then we wait
‘Cause the planning wasn't great
We stand around and hope and pray
They'll get it right - ONE DAY

It's greatcoats on, it's greatcoats off
They wonder why we laugh and scoff
And marvel how they made the top
And long for the day - IT WILL STOP

Army Life is really great,
On parade, we're never late;
Keen as hell, we never rest,
There is no doubt ,we are the best.
