Dinkie Die He went up to London and straightaway strode To Army Headquarters on Horsefeather Road; To see how the buggers were dodgin' the gaff By gettin' soft jobs on the Headquarters Staff. cho: Dinkie Die, dinkie dinkie die Dinkie Die, dinkie dinkie die By getting soft jobs on the Headquarters Staff * A lousy lance corporal says, cool as you please, "There's mud on your tunic and blood on your sleeve. If you think you're a soldier, you're making me laugh." Says this lousy lance corporal on the Headquarters Staff. The digger just shot him a murderous glance Says he, "I'm just back from the shellholes of France, Where whiz-bangs are flying, and comforts are few And brave men are dying for bastards like you." "We're bombed on the left and we're bombed on the right, We're shelled all the day and we're shelled half the night And if something ain't done, and that done mighty soon There'll be nobody left in the bloody platoon." The matter soon came to the ears of Lord Gort Who gave to the matter a great deal of thought; And awarded the digger a V.C. and two bars For giving the lance corporal a kick in the arse. *last line of chorus is same as last line of preceding verse.
