Yes sir, no sir
Where do I go, sir
What do I do, sir
What do I say

Yes sir, no sir
Where do I go, sir
What do I do, sir
How do I behave

Yes sir, no sir
Permission to speak, sir
Permission to breathe, sir
What do I say, how do I behave, what do I say

So you think that you've got ambition
Stop your dreaming and your idle wishing
You're outside and there ain't no admission to our play
Pack up your ambition in your old kit bag

Soon you'll be happy with a packet of fags
Chest out, stomach in
Do what I say, do what I say
Yes, right away

Yes sir, no sir
Where do I go sir
What do I do sir
What do I say

Yes sir, no sir
Permission to speak sir
Permission to breathe sir
What do I say, how do I behave, what do I say

Doesn't matter, who you are
You're there and there you are
Everything is in its place
Authority must be maintained

And then we know exactly where we are
Let them feel that they're important to the cause
But let them know that they are fighting for their homes
Just be sure that they're contributing their all

Give the scum a gun and make the bugger fight
And be sure to have deserters shot on sight
If he dies we'll send a medal to his wife

Yes sir, no sir
Please let me die sir
I think this life is affecting my brain

Yes sir, no sir
Three bags full, sir
What do I do, sir, what do I say
What do I say, how do I behave, what do I say
