sorry guys but I've got an itchy finger ...
'Her dad would have someone clean the Pearly Gates',
but I can't see him doing that, to his muckers and his mates.
Some other buggers maybe, but that isn't for us to care,
what them other silly buggers are looking fur up there.
I'm sure that God will have a job for a man like our Brian
who rose all the way to col-o-nel without not even tryin.
I'm sure that there will be a place at the table next to God,
for a chap like our Brian, because he's a lucky bloody sod.
I knew him when he got injured, 'twas many years ago
I was just a junior leader, a cheeky so and so.
Sgt Draper made it back, surprised us all he did,
bet some doubtful buggers lost more 'an a couple o' quid.
Never bet against him, he always comes up trumps
and he never leaves his muckers down there in the dumps.
For he is a man of fortitude, steadfast, loyal and true,
an example for a thousand years, for the likes of me and you.
