Little girl why are you crying?
Has your Daddy gone away?
I know he is a soldier,
Was he sent to fight that day?
Don’t think he doesn’t love you
For he didn’t want to go
But his country really needed him
He is brave and strong you know.
When you grow up you’ll understand
Bad things happen round the world
Then the brave and strong are called upon
To free people who are hurt.
Your Mummy wants to hold you
And together you’ll be strong
For your Daddy, since he loves you
And to each other you belong.
