For the love of an Empire

In ships, dressed as men, they came to make war,
The old flag up high, with pride it was flown,
Came rushing to answer an Empire’s call,
Boys, boys, all the same, far away from home.
South Africans, recent foes in the Boar,
New Foundlanders and New Zealanders too,
Australians, Canadians, Indians and more,
Why they were fighting, not one of them knew.
But rushing to answer their Empire’s call,
The boys dressed as men, far away from home.
