(B.F.P.O.)
(Army dreamers)
(Mammy's hero)
(B.F.P.O.)
(Mammy's hero)

Our little army boy 
Is coming home from B.F.P.O. 
I've a bunch of purple flowers 
To decorate to mammy's hero

Mourning in the aerodrome
The weather warmer, he is colder
Four men in uniform 
To carry home my little soldier

(What could he do)
(Should have been a rock star)
But he didn't have the money for a guitar
(What could he do)
(Should have been a politician)
But he never had a proper education
(What could he do)
(Should have been a father)
But he never even made it to his twenties
What a waste 
Army dreamers
Ooh, what a waste of 
Army dreamers

Tears o'er a tin box
Oh, Jesus Christ, he wasn't to know
Like a chicken with a fox
He couldn't win the war with ego

Give the kid the pick of pips
And give him all your stripes and ribbons
Now he's sitting in his hole
He might as well have buttons and bows

(What could he do)
(Should have been a rock star)
But he didn't have the money for a guitar
(What could he do)
(Should have been a politician)
But he never had a proper education
(What could he do)
(Should have been a father)
But he never even made it to his twenties
What a waste 
Army dreamers
Ooh, what a waste of 
Army dreamers
Ooh, what a waste of all that 
Army dreamers
Army dreamers
Army dreamers, oh
