Time to enter the green zone boys
I will not let you down
Not fighting here for Queen & Country
Or the folks from my home town
My soldier brothers are my family now
We fight for our Battalion
Patrolling into the enemy ground
With hearts as strong as stallions
`Crack Thump`
A round goes overhead
The Taliban know we are here
My corporals  shouts and quick commands
Dispels my any fears
Section attack with bayonets fixed
We advance towards the enemy
Our rifles fire a wall of lead
As does my trusty Minimi
`Cease Fire` is called
We wait and watch
Then carry on once more
Towards the enemy
We will not stop
This is a soldiers War.
