Well, I don't wanna be a soldier, mama, I don't wanna die
Well, I don't wanna be a sailor, mama, I don't wanna fly
Well, I don't wanna be a failure, mama, I don't wanna cry
Well, I don't wanna be a soldier, mama, I don't wanna die
Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no

Well, I don't wanna be a rich man, mama, I don't wanna cry
Well, I don't wanna be a poor man, mama, I don't wanna fly
