Johnny Hates Jazz – I Don't Want To Be A Hero lyrics

Oh send me off to war with a gun in my hand
But I won't pull the trigger
Our destiny is here 'neath the red white and blue
So lead me to the slaughter

Now don't be afraid come and join the parade
For the ultimate in sacrifice
It's an old-fashioned story of hope and of glory
A ticket for taking a life

Chorus
I I don't want to be a hero
I don't want to die for you
I don't want to be a hero

Oh send me off to war in a far away land
I never knew existed
Subject me to the truth to the horror and pain
Until my mind is twisted

And what if I fail will you put me in jail
For a murder I will not commit
Cause you don't understand till there's blood on your hands
That it's time to forget and forgive

Repeat chorus

And those who return come back only to learn
That they're hated by those who they love
Cause you don't understand till there's blood on your hands
That it's time to forget and forgive

Repeat chorus
