The Retreat

The Retreat

Death in the valley
Change in the sea
Fire in the forest
Not the life for me

giving up my family
going overseas
fighting for my country
this is where Ill be

Saving my mates fighting
giving us a chance
If you see us coming
dont give a second glance

The Japs they are a coming
giving us a fright
all the blokes in triage
will have to stay and fight

past the rubber trees I go
eyes look forward for my foe
the track is ever-present here
giving us a bout of fear

But they saw it coming
they didnt miss a beat
they mowed us down like grass
in the everlasting heat

In Stans last moment
it was said
''If you make it out sarge
tell Nancy we are dead''

we all are in a better place
the place we can retreat
little did our families know
the madness of our feat.
