I found a soldier in a box
A souvenir that someone lost
At such a cost, oh no, oh no

The cemetery gates were closed
Only the humming birds would smell the flowers
Brought for ghosts, oh no

There's not much fame or fortune
For the fortuneteller selling fortunes
To the broke, oh no, oh no

Soldier in a box, he's mighty lonely
Soldier in a box, he's nothing special

He's serenading himself 'cuz nobody's there
He's celebrating himself 'cuz nobody cares
He's serenading himself

Oh no, oh no, "No need to say this letter better get
To where he lays his head"
She said, oh no, oh no, oh no

Seventeen months of wondering why
She forgot to send her thoughts
Was all he got instead, oh no

Her soldier in a box, he's mighty lonely
Soldier in a box, he's nothing special

He's serenading himself 'cuz nobody's there
He's celebrating himself 'cuz nobody cares
He's serenading himself

He's serenading himself 'cuz nobody's there
He's celebrating himself 'cuz nobody cares
He's serenading himself 'cuz nobody's there
He's celebrating himself 'cuz nobody cares

He's serenading himself 'cuz nobody's there
He's celebrating himself 'cuz nobody cares
'Cuz nobody cares, 'cuz nobody cares
