Don’t start that talking, I could talk all night
My mind goes sleepwalking, while I’m putting the world to right
Called careers information, have you got yourself an occupation

Oliver’s Army is here to stay, Oliver’s Army are on their way
And I would rather be anywhere else, than here today


There was a Checkpoint Charlie, he didn’t crack a smile
But it’s no laughing party, when you’ve been on the murder mile
Only takes one itchy trigger, one more widow, one less white nigger

Oliver’s Army is here to stay, Oliver’s Army are on their way
And I would rather be anywhere else, than here today


Hong Kong is up for grabs, London is full of Arabs
We could be in Palestine, overrun by the Chinese line
With the boys from the Mersey and the Thames and the Tyne

But there’s no danger, it’s a professional career
Though it could be arranged with just a word in Mister Churchill’s ear
If you’re out of luck, or if you’re out of work, we could send you to Johannesburg

Olivers Army is here to stay, Olivers Army are on their way
And I would rather be anywhere else, than here today
And I would rather be anywhere else, than here today
And I would rather be anywhere else, than here today
