AndreasW Lyr Req: I'm Asking You Sergeant, Where's Mine? (24) Lyr Req: I'M ASKING YOU, SERGEANT, WHERE'S MINE?^^ 30 Nov 98


Here it is,
Andreas

I'M ASKING YOU, SERGEANT, WHERE'S MINE?

I'm lying in bed I'm in room 26
Thinking on things that I've done
Like drinking with squaddies and bulling my boots
And countin' the medals I've won
These hospital wards that old drab lookin' joints
But the ceilings as much as I see
It could do with a wee touch of paper or paint
But then again maybe that's me

Chorus [once after first verse, three times after second verse]

Oh sergeant is this the adventure you meant
When I put my name down on the line
All that talk of computers and sunshine and skis
Oh I'm askin' you sergeant where's mine

I've a brother in Glasgow with long curly hair
When I joined up he said I was daft
He says shootin' strangers just is not his game
That brother of mine is not soft
But I can put up with most things I've done in my time
I can even put up with the pain
But what do you do with a gun in your hand
When you're faced with a hundred odd wains

as performed by
The Dubliners on the 30 Years A-Greying CDs
