The Lyrics

In the post office in town
Works a man
Who's sailed the seas
And he tells us with a frown
Of his life in the marines
And we think he's got a gun
And he's built like a machine
But he's very highly strung
Our unstable ex-marine

-Chorus-

We work with an unstable ex-marine
Unstable ex-marine
Unstable ex-marine
We work with an unstable ex-marine
Unstable ex-marine
Unstable ex-marine

When the bell rings at the door
He hears echoes of the war
And the band begins to play . . .

-Chorus-

We work with an unstable ex-marine
Unstable ex-marine
Unstable ex-marine
We work with an unstable ex-marine
Unstable ex-marine
Unstable ex-marine

And we're very much on edge
One loud thunderclap
Is all it needs
He'll see red (echo) He'll see red
And we'll be dead (echo) And we'll be dead
An unstable (echo) An unstable
Ex-marine (echo) Ex-marine!

-Chorus-

We work with an unstable ex-marine
Unstable ex-marine
Unstable ex-marine
We work with an unstable ex-marine
Unstable ex-marine
Unstable ex-marine

I am in pain from laughter. True story?

Well, it is partly based on a few actual experiences (not with marines though).
