Though life is bit by bit
Falling into an enemy’s pit
Is a total misfit
Because a bandit
Can cook a titbit
For the blood we knit
Not to flow but quit,
Then that, which we did inherit
Would be an exhibit
In order to limit
Where we inhabit
For our permit
To lose its merit,
So that when they hit
From wherever they sit
They can yell BREXIT O BREXIT


I am an eagle
The offspring of my nation,
I conquer the jungle
And defeat colonies,
I was made in the barracks.

I am a dove
I keep peace,
The passion of my mother
The mission of my father.

The blood of service
The bone of commitment,
The mind of patriotism
An oath of loyalty,
Gallant and vigilant
Young and enthusiastic,
I am made in the barracks.

Dad is here with Mum
Brother is here with sister,
Uncle is here with aunt
Nephew is here with niece,
Cousin is here with relative
A family, our nation
We are one big people;
Made In The Barracks.
