Verse 1
-------
A
I could be a soldier
                                    G
Go out there and fight to save this land
A
Be a people's soldier
                    G
Paramilitary gun in hand
A
I won't be a soldier
                               G
I won't take no orders from no-one
A
Stuff their fuckin' armies
                         G
Killing isn't my idea of fun

Chorus
------
               E        A
And they wanna waste my life
           E        A
They wanna waste my time
           E        A
They wanna waste my life
            G      D   A
And they've stolen it away

Verse 2
-------
A
I could be a hero
                                 G
Live and die for their important cause
A
A united nation
                             G
Or an independent state with laws
    A
And rules and regulations
                                   G
That merely cause disturbances and wars
    A
And that's what I have got now
                                  G
All thanks to the freedom seeking hoardes

{Repeat chorus}

Bridge
------
F#               E
I'm not gonna be taken in
     F#                     E
They said if I don't join I just can't win
     F#                    E
I've heard that story many times before
    F#                        G#
And every time I've thrown it out the door

Verse 3
-------
A
Still they come up to me
                                   G
With a different name and same old face
A
I can see the connection
                              G
With another time and another place
        A
No they ain't blond-haired or blue-eyed
                                       G
But they think that they're the master race
        A
They're nothing but blind fascists
                                      G
Brought up to hate and given lives to waste

{repeat chorus twice}
