     Strikin' up The Soldiers Song,   I know that tune 
                         Dm      G 
     It begs too many questions,      And answers too

     The purple and the pinstripe,   They mutely shake their heads 
                           Dm                                  C

     Stab ya in the back,  Yeah,  Laughing in your face 
                      Dm          G 
     Glad to see the place again,    It's a pity nothings changed 

              Dm               C 
     Banana republic,  Septic Isle 
                      Dm                         C
