`Give thanks he is a British soldier.`

They come from England Ulster Scotland and Wales
Stand proud and tall and hard as nails
From the dole and pubs and some from Jails
Now one as a British soldier

Saddam Hussein or Taliban
It matters not they know they can
From Basra city to Afghanistan
They fight as a British soldier

There not political they just do their job
From bullets and bricks from an angry mob
When a comrade is shot
We will comfort your sob
We are one as a British soldier

If you see a soldier in your street today
Don’t walk on by or look the other way
Just shake his hand and make his day
Give thanks he is a British soldier.
