The Lyrics

When sending of the new recruit on a fool's errand, have you considered perhaps, maybe, not doing that? Not only is it kind of a dick thing to do, it can also get really out of hand...
Sir, if I'm allowed to explain
We didn't mean to go this far
Done this before, a classic, zero-trouble wheeze
But now the snipe hunt is a farce
On the newbie, blame has landed
Just a newbie, we're the jerks
Sent him off to find headlight fluid
Now, somehow, half the base burns

"Go and find some elbow grease, little man
Ask 'round for it, move your buttcheeks, little man"
That's all we said, how could that then turn out
With ten tanks inbound?

No elbow grease was found
To a halt, our base ground
Bad joke, old schtick
Now we must pay for it

Guess this means that newb ain't hopeless
More clever than we could've hoped
Once he gets more knowledge, once he can't be hazed
I'm sure you'll see how much he'll grow
There's a bright side to shenanigans
It's small and vague, but it's still there
And once we've cleared the whole base of flamingos
You'll see, I swear, you'll see, I swear

Didn't mean this at all
Did not intend flameballs
Our bad, don't blame
The newb we sent away
Give him cred, he (sir, he) found some (found some)
Headlight fluid, huge drums
Somehow (somehow), some way (some way)
That should be worth the pain

Our fault
Our fault
Our fault
Our fault

Elbow grease? How stupid do they think I am? Once I get back to base with that headlight fluid, I'm gonna talk to the Sergeant.
