about

About a crazy time in a young man's life, when he went out and signed up to play war games with friends. As the sport commences, he starts to fantasize about what it would be like to become a real mercenary.

lyrics

Do you need a one man army
Mercenary to start world war three
With gun and dungarees
Like a one man cavalry

Dirty deeds for a fee
Fighting for your democracy, your democracy

Mercenary, mercenary, mercenary, mercenary
One tough breed, one tough breed
One tough breed

What’s your preference; it’s all routine
So wonderfully, neat and clean
Your very own personal fiend
You must pay him in gold or green

Fighting like a machine
Not for love, God, or the Queen; not for God, or the Queen

Mercenary, mercenary, mercenary, mercenary
One tough breed, one tough breed
One tough breed

Mercenaries are always on the run
Soldiers of fortune, lie awake with a gun
War is hell, but the job has gotta be done
And if you want to, you can be one

Mercenary, mercenary, mercenary, mercenary
One tough breed, one tough breed
One tough breed

Mercenary, mercenary, mercenary, mercenary
