Johnny Rumble:
The Great Mistake...

The guns have stopped firing
7:30 on a gentle July day
The 1st of the month
The last day for many
Your captains whistle has blown
Up over the top and away you go

Six Hundred thousand
Sent to their early grave
The Great British Fuck Up
On this gentle July day.

You expected in to be easy
Thought you’d survive to the end
A week left in the trenches
Paris in sight by weeks end
Yet you lay motionless
For all to be seen


Straight into the devils lair
Machine gun fire, Endless slaughter
Wave after wave of human death
March you did, died as well too.
What did you die for?
Only a mile or two.
