Soldier, say goodbye
Soldier, say goodbye
War makes you a hero, so they say

Widow, wave goodbye
Widow, wave goodbye
Don’t wait for a lonesome ghost, refrain

Take me away to the rainbow skies
Sing high love, sing high

Mother, take me home
Mother, take me home
I’m lost as a child, and I have failed

Lover, come to me
Lover, come to me
I’m high with desire, wild tonight

Take me away to the rainbow skies
Shag high love, shag high

Then over the hills came the soldier boy
A wife and a baby to greet his smile
A fairytale ending, a blue moon high
You’ll have it all if you close your eyes
