LUCKY MAN

He said goodbye to all his family
A wife, three sons to fight for his country
Oh a lucky man am I
Such a lucky man am I

The war arrived, England needed every man
They called my dad, just an ordinary man
Oh a lucky man am I
Such a lucky man am I

I try so hard to think of him beneath the desert sun
This ordinary man whose hands were forced to hold a gun
I look at this old man; I try to look inside his eyes
Imagine all the sights and sounds
And pictures in his mind

Returning home to near normality
His wife gave him a son and yes the son
You know was me
Oh a lucky man am I
Such a lucky man am I
