I Don't Want To Be A Soldier

Unknown

4:4 Key: C

[C]I don't want to [G7]be a [C]soldier.
[F]I don't want to go to [C]war,
I’d [G7]rather 'ang around,
Piccadilly [C]underground,
[D7]Livin' off the earnings of a [G7]high-born lady.
[C]Don't want a bullet up me [G7]back[C]side,
[F]Don't want me knackers shot [E7]away,
Oh, I’d [F]rather be in Eng[C]land,
[F]Merry, merry Eng[C]land,
[D7]Livin’ on a Limey’s [G7]pay, Gor Blimey.

[C]Call out the army and[G7] the n[C]avy,
[F]Call out the rank and [C]file,
[G7]Call out the members of the [C]old home guard.
[D7]They’ll face danger with a [G7]smile, Gor Blimey.
[C]Call out the members of the [G7]guards’ bri[C]gade.
[F]They’ll keep England[E7] free.
[F]Call out me [C]brother,
Me [F]sister and me [C]mother,
But[D7] for God’s sake don't[G7] call[C] me!

[C]I don't want to [G7]be a [C]soldier,
[F]Don't want to join the fightin' [C]class,
I ju[G7]st want to go, down [C]to old Soho,
[D7]Pinchin' all the girlies in the [G7]shoulder blades.
[C]I don't want to see the Queen's [G7]domi[C]nions,
[F]London's full o' girls I've never[E7] 'ad,
I’d [F]rather be in Eng[C]land,
[F]Merry, merry Eng[C]land,
[D7]And follow in the footsteps of me [G7]poor old dad.

[C]Call out the army and [G7]the [C]navy,
[F]Call out the rank and [C]file,
[G7]Call out the members of the [C]old home guard.
[D7]They’ll face danger with a [G7]smile, Gor Blimey.
[C]Call out the members of the [G7]guards’ bri[C]gade.
[F]They’ll keep England[E7] free.
[F]Call out me [C]brother,
Me [F]sister and me [C]mother,
But[D7] for God’s sake don't[G7] call[C] me!

[F]Call out me [C]brother,
Me [F]sister and me [C]mother,

But [D7]for God’s sake don't [G7]call [C]me!
