The Lyrics Are Below

She's Got Medals



She'd walk through the door and she'd set up the drinks on the house

She played a good game of darts, and the men slapped her back

And never took her out

She wore a trenchcoat khaki

Her hobnail boots were full of holes

She's got medals


Her mother called her Mary, but she changed her name to Tommy, she's a one, oh

She went and joined the army, passed the medical

Don't ask me how it's done

They sent her to the front line

Fighting for her country's name

She's got medals


She got very tired of picking up girls

Cleaning her gun and shaving her curls

Then the enemy dropped a bomb

Survivors there were none


People say that when the moon is full and all the stars have gone to bed

You can see her ghost but that's a lie because the naughty woman isn't dead

She deserted on the previous morning

Replaced her uniform with dresses silk and green

Called herself Eileen

Came to London town

Now she's settled down

She's got medals
