I Don't Want to Be a Soldier
(John Lennon)

Well I don't wanna be a soldier mamma, I don't wanna die
Well I don't wanna be a sailor mamma, I don't wanna fly
Well I don't wanna be a failure mamma, I don't wanna cry
Well I don't wanna be a soldier mamma, I don't wanna die
Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no

Well I don't wanna be a rich man mamma, I don't wanna cry
Well I don't wanna be a poor man mamma, I don't wanna fly
Well I don't wanna be a lawyer mamma, I don't wanna lie
Well I don't wanna be a soldier mamma, I don't wanna die
Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no

Well I don't wanna be a beggar mamma, I don't wanna die
Well I don't wanna be a theif now mamma, I don't wanna fly
Well I don't wanna be a churchman mamma, I don't wanna cry
Well I don't wanna be a soldier mamma, I don't wanna die
Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no
Hit it!

Well I don't wanna be a soldier mamma, I don't wanna die
Well I don't wanna be a sailor mamma, I don't wanna fly
Well I don't wanna be a failure mamma, I don't wanna cry
Well I don't wanna be a soldier mamma, I don't wanna die
Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no
