TALK ABOUT GLORY

I’m just sitting here
getting fat drink a beer
think about life as it disappears
I’m just lazy
I never watch the evening news
it’s full of bad things that give me the blues
it’s crazy, makes me mad.

CHORUS

I’d rather be a five star general on a battlefield
talk about glory that’s a life you could be proud to live

I’m not bragging here
I’ve been everywhere
no, not abroad who’d want to live there anyway? -
it’s far to hot
I read it on a poster
or was it on a coaster?
I know about things you’d never understand
cos I read a lot - and I smoke pot....

CHORUS 2

I’d rather be Duncan Bannatyne
he has a lot of money and a car that shines
I’d rather be a five star general on a battlefield
talk about glory that’s a life you could be proud to live

I nearly had a girlfriend
very nice but in the end
I had to call it off
she came on far too rude
didn’t like Star Wars, Call Of Duty,
Game of Thrones
tried to teach her but she did not have the aptitude, or the skill.
CHORUS 3

I’d rather be an astronaut in space
they get a lot of women with that chiseled face
I’d rather be Duncan Bannatyne
he has a lot of money and a car that shines
I’d rather be a five star general on a battlefield
talk about glory that’s a life you could be proud to live

CHORUS 3

I’d rather be President Vladimir Putin
He has a lot of fun sticking it to the UN
I’d rather be an astronaut in space
they get a lot of women with that chiseled face
I’d rather be Duncan Banatyne
he has a lot of money and a car that shines
I’d rather be a five star general on a battlefield
talk about glory that’s a life you could be proud, you could be proud - to live
