I woke up in a dirty trench
And then I sat on a rough bench.
Captain Dudley, our main man, came up with a plan.
Moustached Dudley went to a prom
Whilst we used a weapon at the Somme.
My friend Barry cried whilst Garry died.
Ah, rats, they were as big as cats.
Bang, bang went the tank.
Then the rusted old bell rang.
The day was ours.
Then I woke up in tears
With bells still ringing in my ears.
