The Dry Canteen

There were three soldiers who went to war,
(Chorus) Well why not?
They'd arms and legs and plenty of jaw
(Chorus) All they'd got!
They reckoned the first three years were the works
And anything's yours if you see it first,
Whatever you do take care of your thirst.
(Chorus) Well, why not?

[Hata Bildir]
