The Lyrics

This song is a reply to Robert Arndt. Finnish Army allowed women to serve in the armed forces in 1992, by initiative of Minister of Defence Elisabeth Rehn, who herself had served in the women's auxiliary force in WWII. Finnish hard rock band Popeda made a satirical song "Kersantti Karoliina" (Sergeant Caroline) over the topic. The original song can be found here - /www.youtube.com/watch?v=cawQFCNbaXU . Pauli Mustajärvi, the singer of Popeda, is himselves a sergeant in Finnish army reserves. I attempted to translate the original song as well as I could.
I have cowboy boots - and I play guitar
You might think none's tougher me so far
but I admit, I'm soft as ripest fruits
My woman, yes, she wears the army boots

I heard Caroline has left, she said
she had joined the army and she left me as her maid
I blame you, Madam Elisabeth Rehn -
my woman is a lifer - oi vey!

I clean the house - and I bake the buns
and making lace - is my word for fun
Your brutal voice is like squeezing of the balls
when you drill recruits - and then I recall:

I heard Caroline has left, she said
she had joined the army and she left me as her maid
I blame you, Madam Elisabeth Rehn -
my woman is a lifer - oi vey!

I heard Caroline has left, she said
she had joined the army and she left me as her maid
I blame you, Madam Elisabeth Rehn -
my woman is a lifer - oi vey!

[strict woman's voice]
Attention! Eyes right! Attention! Eyes left!
Your voice is like knife which leaves male soul cleft!

I wash the laundry, the dishes all I do
I change the diapers of our twins, that's true
You come back home at six o'clock and yell -
"Where is my dinner? Now will you tell!"

I heard Caroline has left, she said
she had joined the army and she left me as her maid
I heard Caroline has left, she said
she had joined the army and she left me as her maid
I blame you, Madam Elisabeth Rehn -
my woman is a lifer - oi vey!
