Join the British Army

Song Author Írskt þjóðlag Lyrics by: Írskt þjóðlag Performer: The Dubliners Submitted by: HjaltiG
[Am]When I was young, I used to be,
As [G]fine a man as ever you'd see,
'til the [Am]Prince of Wales, he said to me,
Come and join the British army.

[Am]Too-ra loo-ra loo-ra loo,
They're [G]lookin' for monkeys up in the zoo,
And [Am]if I had a face like you
I'd [G]join the British [Am]army.

[Am]Sarah Comden baked a cake,
It's [G]all for poor old Slattery's sake,
She [Am]threw meself into the lake,
Pretendin' I was balmy.

[Am]Too-ra loo-ra loo-ra loo,
They're [G]lookin' for monkeys up in the zoo,
And [Am]if I had a face like you
I'd [G]join the British [Am]army.

[Am]Sergeant Heeley went away,
And his [G]wife got in the family way,
And the [Am]only thing that she could say,
*Fuck* the British [Am]army.

[Am]Too-ra loo-ra loo-ra loo,
They're [G]lookin' for monkeys up in the zoo,
And [Am]if I had a face like you
I'd [G]join the British [Am]army.

[Am]Corporal Sheen's a turn o' the 'bout,
Just [G]give him a couple o' jars o' stout,
He'll [Am]bake the enemy with his mouth,
And save the British army.

[Am]Too-ra loo-ra loo-ra loo,
They're [G]lookin' for monkeys up in the zoo,
And [Am]if I had a face like you
I'd [G]join the British [Am]army.

[Am]Kilted soldiers wear no drawers,
[G]won't you kindly lend them yours
The [Am]rich must always help the poor
to save the British army

[Am]Too-ra loo-ra loo-ra loo,
They're [G]lookin' for monkeys up in the zoo,
And [Am]if I had a face like you
I'd [G]join the British [Am]army.

[Am]When I was young I used to be
as [G]fine a man as ever you'd see
Til the [Am]Prince of Wales he said to me:
"Come and join the British army"

[Am]Too-ra loo-ra loo-ra loo,
They're [G]lookin' for monkeys up in the zoo,
And [Am]if I had a face like you
I'd [G]*Fuck* the British [Am]army.

When I was young, I used to be,
As fine a man as ever you'd see,
'til the Prince of Wales, he said to me,
Come and join the British army.

Too-ra loo-ra loo-ra loo,
They're lookin' for monkeys up in the zoo,
And if I had a face like you
I'd join the British army.

Sarah Comden baked a cake,
It's all for poor old Slattery's sake,
She threw meself into the lake,
Pretendin' I was balmy.

Too-ra loo-ra loo-ra loo,
They're lookin' for monkeys up in the zoo,
And if I had a face like you
I'd join the British army.

Sergeant Heeley went away,
And his wife got in the family way,
And the only thing that she could say,
*Fuck* the British army.

Too-ra loo-ra loo-ra loo,
They're lookin' for monkeys up in the zoo,
And if I had a face like you
I'd join the British army.

Corporal Sheen's a turn o' the 'bout,
Just give him a couple o' jars o' stout,
He'll bake the enemy with his mouth,
And save the British army.

Too-ra loo-ra loo-ra loo,
They're lookin' for monkeys up in the zoo,
And if I had a face like you
I'd join the British army.

Kilted soldiers wear no drawers,
won't you kindly lend them yours
The rich must always help the poor
to save the British army

Too-ra loo-ra loo-ra loo,
They're lookin' for monkeys up in the zoo,
And if I had a face like you
I'd join the British army.

When I was young I used to be
as fine a man as ever you'd see
Til the Prince of Wales he said to me:
"Come and join the British army"

Too-ra loo-ra loo-ra loo,
They're lookin' for monkeys up in the zoo,
And if I had a face like you
I'd *Fuck* the British army.
