Looks just like an Army Brat
We'll have lots of fun when Daddy gets back
You can't help but hear those gunshots crack
The disappointment when the troops must all fall back

Army Brat looks at Daddy's chest
Decorated colors on his grimy vest
Trophies for a man who did his best
Back in the desert, this extended guest

Army Brat looks to everyone else
To explain what's wrong with Daddy's health
A grenade resolved below the belt
Now Daddy's never going to feel very well

Why did Daddy go and fight in that war
Working as America's grenadine whore
Doomed to a life of dust and gore
Army Brat believes this is what life is for
