Stay Low, Move Fast, Stay Safe

Once again another tour of duty
Takes you loved ones far from home
But one thing you must always remember
Is that you will never be alone

We’ll think about you day and night
Keep your love deep in our hearts
We’ll stay as strong as we can be
Whilst we are miles apart

Keep thoughts of us inside your hearts
So your minds stay clear and strong
To keep focussed on your duties
Then nothing will go wrong

As you go out there to that place of hell
Do what you must do
Always keep this thought in mind
We are extremely proud of you

We will not lie, we’ll miss you
We’ll worry and we’ll pray
But one thing you can be sure of
We’re behind you all the way

Whatever this tour may throw at you
We know you’ll face it and move on
But should certain events bother you
Be strong and talk to someone

We know that all you soldiers
Must be strong and hide your fears
But even the bravest soldiers
Are allowed to shed their tears

Trust your fellow brothers
For they’ll put their trust in you
Watch over one another
And see each other through

Now, remember please, three golden rules
As you go and face that strafe
The rules we always say to you
Stay low, move fast, stay safe
