Ain’t got no hands, ain’t got no feet

Doing the nation shuffle down the street

Wake up at night with Remembrance Day screams

And I can’t wear poppies cos they make me sneeze

 

Everywhere I went carried a photo of my kids

I can’t look them in the eye and tell em what I did

I dreamed of being back in the footy stands

When I get there, can’t clap, cos I don’t have hands

 

I only wanted to make money as part of a team

But I can’t really tell you what that means

I only wanted to serve, do the righteous thing

But…  shame ways my eyes… I can’t look at the flag…

… And never again will I sing…
