The Lyrics

I can't help but think that if the EU ever does decide to have a single European army, it's going to be kind of shambolic. So here's a song about it...
We are the Euro-army
The fighting force of today
We work together, take orders in English
That is, except les Fran├žais

We'll fight alongside the Germans
If we ever go to war
And if the image seems kinda familiar
Well, we've fought "with" 'em one or two times before

We're working out rules of engagement
Addressing all our members' fears
And soon we'll be ready for battle
In only nine or ten years

So join in the Euro-army
From no conflict will we baulk
So come on you Spanish, Italians and Belgians
Ready!
Aim!
Talk!

I am a bit, as it happens: it's a bit like a lot of Microsoft programs, in that I think the concept's great, but the implementation sucks.

Speaking of European armies, I hear Lithuania has adopted the old U.S. slogan of "an army of one". Except in their case it's literal. Good work.

Excellent satire.

'Tis better to jaw-jaw than to war-war, but sometimes you must war-war rather than jaw-jaw.
