Mum and Dad and Denny
saw the passing out parade at Puckapunyal
It was a long march from cadets
The sixth battalion was the next to tour,
and it was me who drew the card
We did Canungra, Shoal water before we left

And Townsville lined the footpaths as we marched down to the quay
This clipping from the paper shows us young and strong and clean
And there’s me in me slouch hat with me SLR and greens
God help me, I was only nineteen

From Vung Tau, riding Chinooks, to the dust at Nui Dat
I’d been in and out of choppers now for months
But we made our tents a home, VB and pinups on the lockers
And an Asian orange sunset through the scrub

And can you tell me, doctor, why I still can’t get to sleep?
And night time’s just a jungle dark and a barking M six teen?
And what’s this rash that comes and goes,
can you tell me what it means?
God help me, I was only nine teen

A four weeks operation
when each step could mean your last one on two legs
It was war within yourself
But you wouldn’t let your mates down til they had you dusted off
So you closed your eyes and thought about something else

Then someone yelled out “Contact!” and the bloke behind me swore
We hooked in there for hours, then a god all mighty roar
Frankie kicked a mine the day that man kind kicked the moon
God help me, he was going home in June

I can still see Frankie, drinking tinnies in the Grand Hotel
On a thirty six hour rec leave in Vung Tau
And I can still hear Frankie, lying screaming in the jungle
Til the morphine came and killed the bloody row

And the Anzac legends didn’t mention mud and blood and tears
And the stories that my father told me never seemed quite real
I aught some pieces in my back that I didn’t even feel
God help me, I was only nineteen

And can you tell me, doctor, why I still can’t get to isleep?
And why the Channel Seven chopper chills me to my feet?
And what’s this rash that comes and goes, can you tell me what it means?
God help me, I was only nineteen
