when the marching’s over

Klaus J. Gerken

when the marching’s over
what will you do
what will you do
what will you do

marching is my special way
to get out there and have my say
burn the flag make lots of waves
time for us to save the world

but

when the marching’s over
what will you do
what will you do
what will you do

have a beer and watch the news
done my bit and need a rest
have to watch me on TV
ruined my shoes they were the best

when the marching’s over
that’s what we do
that’s what we do
that’s what we do!
