Fathers are pleading, lovers are all alone
Mothers are praying - send our sons back home
You marched them away - yes, you did - on ships and planes
To the senseless war, facing death in vain

Bring the boys home
Bring the boys home
Bring the boys home
Bring the boys home
Turn the ships around, lay your weapons down

Can't you see em march across the sky, all the soldiers that have died
Tryin to get home - can't you see them tryin to get home?
Tryin to get home - they're tryin to get home
Seesaw fire on the battlefield
Enough men have already been wounded or killed

Bring the boys home
Bring the boys home
Bring the boys home
Bring the boys home
Turn the ships around, lay your weapons down

Oooh, oooh...
Tryin to get home - can't you see them tryin to get home?
Oooh, oooh...
Tryin to get home - they're tryin to get home

Bring the boys home
Bring the boys home
Bring the boys home
Bring the boys home
What they doing over there, now
When we need them over here, now
What they doing over there, now
When we need them over here, now
