The Queen's Hammer

Tags: desert, war, tanks

The Queen's Hammer

Queen's Royal Hussars

our challengers jump to life

bringer of death to thy enemy

new blokes welcome to the sand box

sitting in my turret cup of afternoon tea

a song comes across the radio

I'm a soldier in the Queen's Army

I'm a galloping Queen's Hussar

I've sailed the ocean wide and blue

I'm a chap who knows a thing or two

Been in many tight corner

Shown the enemy who we are

a roar goes down the line

God save the Queen

word passes down the line we move

7 clicks to Basra

storm clouds brewing north

pillars of smoke on the horizon

swirling in the desert

Hussar's on the move

God bless us all for we did not know

what awaited us
