Premature Enlistment

This song is by Free Beer and appears on the compilation Not So Quiet on the Western Front (1982).

The few the proud the mentally ill
Here's a gun, kill!
You joined the army to straighten out your life
Now there's a war you gonna have to fight

Commies and nazis fighting everywhere
And you don't even care
The other day out on the rifle range
Your friend blew out his brains
Blood and guts war you're just a young boy
You're lucky if you live to 24
And they told you joining was such a good deal
It's your life they're gonna steal

The few the proud the mentally ill
Here's a gun, kill!
You joined the army to straighten out your life
Now there's a war you gonna have to fight

Are you ready to watch your friends glow
When the nuclear switch is thrown
Nuclear foreplay has lasted so long
Consider yourself gone
On the battlefield wondering why you signed
And let these people play with your mind
And they told you joining was such a good deal
It's your life they're gonna steal
