Mrs Henderson Presents the Musical - Innocent Soldier Lyrics


"Innocent Soldier" is a song performed by The Company from Mrs Henderson Presents the musical.

Innocent soldier marches away
Has no choice, he has to obey
He’s told it’s his duty
To die for you
That it’s the right thing
That it’s the right thing to do

Young men are falling
To the very last one
Love lost to the sound of a gun
To die so early
Just 22
But old men tell us
That it’s the right thing to do

He was young, just a lad
And he did nothing bad
Looks as though this whole world has gone mad
He was told he must fight and to kill was alright
That can’t be right
That can’t be right

When this war is over
We will all be saying
“Wasted lives are too high a price to pay.”

Innocent dreamer going to war
Coming back was all he lived for
I never loved him, nor wanted to
Don’t you regret it, it was the right thing to do

He was good, he was kind
He was fun, just a kid
And I’m glad that you did what you did
You put dreams in his head
That took him from the terror of each day
You took some of it away
(Away)

When this war is over
We (we) will all be saying
“Wasted lives are too high a price to pay.”
They were bold, they were brave
Now they lie in some grave
Some nameless grave
Some nameless grave

When this war is over
We will all be saying
“Wasted lives are too high a price to pay.”
They were bold, they were brave
Now they lie in some grave
Some nameless grave
Where no flags wave
