In the army now
A vacation in a foreign land, Uncle Sam does the best he can |
You're in the army now, oh-oo-oh you're in the army now
Now you remember what the draft man said, nothing to do all day but stay in bed
You'll be the hero of the neighbourhood, nobody knows that you've left for good
Smiling faces as you wait to land, but once you get there no-one gives a damn
Hand grenades flying over your head
Missiles flying over your head, if you want to survive get out of bed
Shots ring out in the dead of night, the sergeant calls 'Stand up and fight!'
You've got your orders better shoot on sight, your finger's on the trigger but it don't seem right
Night is falling and you just can't see, is this illusion or reality?
Oh-oo-oh you're in the army, in the army now
Bolland & Bolland are two Dutch music producers and brothers Rob Bolland (born on April 17, 1955) and Ferdi Bolland (born on August 5, 1956). They were born in Port Elizabeth in South Africa.
They produced and wrote for such artists as Falco (including his Number 1 hit "Rock Me Amadeus"), Samantha Fox ("Love House"), and wrote the Status Quo hit "In the Army Now" – which they released under their own name in 1981 and which was also recorded by Gerard Joling. As musicians in their own right they released their first eponymous album in 1975.
