Though I never saw his uniform
And he never went to war
He was the one who taught me
Those things worth fighting for

Things like love and freedom
Justice, respect and right
Sometimes, he said my son
You'll have to stand and fight

Temper, hate or politics
Are no reason to raise your hand
But honour, defence and family
Are things you'll understand

Many politicians rant and rave
Some think we are a world power
But when the shooting starts
On their benches they will cower

Truth is you are better served
If the choice is in your hand
Not to prosecute a war abroad
But stay home and defend our land

We cannot stop, because if a single one of these men were taken and shot, that would be our fault - Edith Cavell

Many memorable, engaging lines. I particularly like the third verse which reads very well...
