Rookie (That old my birth certs is expired / Glasgow)

Remember


Heroes and sheroes from across our land
We should always remember in far of lands
The names of them we do not know
Unless they come home in a flag shrouded robe

From our villages and cities far and wide
Leaving behind husbands and wives
Will they return to meet again?
Know one will know were or when

Remember these people they have no political goal
They just go wherever their told
Remember our sheroes and heroes to
Cause what they do is for me and you

    heroes and sheroes
    these 3 words enough to bring me unforuntately back in time but they are
    beautiful compassionate words and musically second to none.
    they bring such images and remembrances to bear.

    thanks,

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,

Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
