The Hero’s

Down in the trenches
Down in the mud
Under the gunfire
Under the blood

They went over the top and down in the mud
They gave their lives to save our blood

Returning home
Injured, wounded and battle weary
Our support is what they need
In order to return some normality 

Torn and worn
Mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers
Left behind for all to see
Help them all to be like you and me

Protecting us now
Lives on the line
Risking it all for yours and mine
Spare a thought to keep them fine

Gunfire, explosions, battles and war
Our hero’s have seen it all and much more
They’ve been over the top and down in the mud
They’ve given their lives to save our blood

Eleven
Eleven
Eleven
We must never forget any of thee

Today
Put on a poppy
And take just a minute
To remember how they all used to be
