Motorhead - 1916

16 years old when i went to war,
To fight for a land fit for heroes,
God on my side,and a gun in my hand,
Counting my days down to zero,
And i marched and i fought and i bled
And i died & i never did get any older,
But i knew at the time, that a year in the line,
Is a long enough life for a soldier,
We all volunteered,
And we wrote down our names,
And we added two years to our ages,
Eager for life and ahead of the game,
Ready for history's pages,
And we fought and we brawled
And we whored 'til we stood,
Ten thousand shoulder to shoulder,
A thirst for the hun,
We were food for the gun,and that's What you are when you're soldiers,
I heard my friend cry,
And he sank to his knees,coughing blood
As he screamed for his mother
And i tell by his, side,
And that's how we died,
Clinging like kids to each other,
And i lay in the mud
And the guts and the blood,
And i wept as his body grew colder,
And i called for my mother
And she never came,
Though it wasn't my fault
And i wasn't to blame,
The day not half over
And ten thousand slain,and now
There's nobody remembers our names
And that's how it is for a soldier.
