Cut down by Maxim guns.

Ain't I pitiful
Wheel me around all day.

Boil me an egg
Pancakes, a griddle full
Then watch me worm away....

And shed a tear on a poppy
Though they never met
Their dad was a vet
And there was no carbon copy...

Like a troll on the dole
Who freaks out on a Viet Cong dong...

some victims of war
fill veterans' hospitals

Our hearts beat as one all metronomey.
Falling in love was not a decision;
Our souls were destined for this collision....
