These are your orders, seems like it's do it or die
So, please read them closely
When you've learnt them, be sure that you eat them up
They're specially flavored with Burgundy, Tizer and Rye
Twelve sheets of foolscap, don't ask me why

We hit the jungle just as it starts to monsoon
Our maps showed no rainfall
All the boys were depressed by this circumstance
Trust in the weather to bless agricultural man
Who gives birth to more farmhands, don't ask me why

Fifteen was chosen because he was dumb
Seven because he was blind
I got the job because I was so mean
While somehow appearing so kind

Drifting about through the cauliflower trees
With a cauliflower ear for the birds
The squadron assembled what senses they had
And this is the sound that they heard

Back at headquarters, khaki decisions are made
File under 'Futile', that should give you it's main point of reference
It's all so confusing, what with pythons and then deadly flies
But to them it's a picnic, don't ask me why

Thirteen was chosen because of his luck
Eleven because of his feet
One got signed up for exceptional pluck
Another because he was mute

Roaming about through the gelatin swamps
With a gelatin eye on the stripes
The squadron assembled what senses they had
And this is the sound that they heard

Back in Blighty there was you
There were milkmen every morning
But these endless shiny trees
Never used to be that way

Back in Blighty there was you
There were milkmen every morning
But these endless shiny trees
Never used to be that way

Back in Blighty there was you
There were milkmen every morning
But these endless shiny trees
