I can fly you to your loved ones
But I can promise no return
To a shell shocked god forsaken
Where the craters, still they burn

Have a drink on me
Have a drink on me

Still the worst is over
That I hope you understand
Then your one more hurdle over
A protector of the land

Have a drink on me
I'll put it down to the company

Three cheers to the blue skinned beast, hip-hip
To the blue skinned beast, hip-hip
Three cheers to the blue skinned beast, hip-hip-hip-hip
To the blue skinned beast, hip-hip

Here you have this medal
You can even melt it down
Or frame it in the living room
Every time you turn around

Have a drink on me
Have a drink on me

I heard you shout for yesterday
But I was sleeping on the job
And I dreamt of fighters miles away
Whose lives I had to rob

Have a drink on me
I'll put it down to the company

Three cheers to the blue skinned beast, hip-hip
To the blue skinned beast, hip-hip
Three cheers to the blue skinned beast, hip-hip-hip-hip
To the blue skinned beast, hip-hip

Here you have this medal
You can even melt it down
Or frame it in the living room
Every time you turn around

I can fly your loved ones to you
With guarantee of no return
And if John Wayne dummies bounce off
Don't look shocked when it comes your turn

Have a drink on me
I'll put it down to the company

Three cheers to the blue skinned beast, hip-hip
To the blue skinned beast, hip-hip
Three cheers to the blue skinned beast, hip-hip-hip-hip
To the blue skinned beast, hip-hip

Hip-hip hip-hip
Hip-hip-hip-hip hip-hip

Three cheers to the blue skinned beast, hip-hip
To the blue skinned beast, hip-hip
Hip-hip-hip-hip hip-hip

Three cheers to the blue skinned beast, hip-hip
To the blue skinned beast, hip-hip

Three cheers to the blue skinned beast, hip-hip-hip-hip
To the blue skinned beast hip-hip
