Oh..... oh 
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah 

A few more days we'll be home glory 
Ready they'll be getting out the flags 
With men fists high motive delatory 
Still I only see a lot of snares  

Just because I triumph as a slaver 
Oh yes I did 
Brought beauty back to Egypt by the ton 
Of this and ever month now I'm the flavor 
Oh yea yea 
And scheduled to things I've never done 

And way should I tell you this 
A stranger I just met 
Oh my my 
A few more days and we'll be home in glory
Already they'll be getting out the flags
With Memphis high dormitory
For me, I only see a lot of snags

The prospect above all I find distressful
Is having to give up the soldier's life
If anything I'm rather too successful
They made me hand my sword in for a wife

For just because I've triumphed as a slaver
Brought booty back to Egypt by the ton
Of this and every month, I'm now the flavor
And scheduled to do things I've never done

And why should I tell you this, a stranger I just met
A woman who in hours from now I'll certainly forget
Anonymous and undemanding
Enchantment passing through
My secrets and my confidence are safe enough with you

My days out on the field are all but ended
They'll put me out to grass which means the throne
Bedecked and bejeweled alongside my intended
I feel as though my heart is set in stone

But maybe I am being far too gloomy
Yes, maybe I'll make waves in pastures new
Find goverment and politics come to me
As naturally as I now talk to you

For just because I've triumphed as a slaver
Brought booty back to Egypt by the ton
Of this and every month, I'm now the flavor
And scheduled to do things I've never done

And why should I tell you this, a stranger I just met
A woman who in hours from now I'll certainly forget
Anonymous and undemanding
Enchantment passing through
My secret lack of confidence is safe enough with you

Why should I tell you this, a stranger I just met
A woman who in hours from now I'll certainly forget
Anonymous and undemanding
Enchantment passing through
My secret lack of confidence is safe enough with you
