You are in the army now


Status Quo



A vacation in a foreign land
Uncle Sam does the best he can
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now

Now you remember what the draftsman said
Nothing to do all day but stay in bed
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now

You be the hero of the neighborhood
Nobody knows that you left for good
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now

Smiling faces as you wait to land
But once you get there no one gives a damn
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now

Hand grenades flying over your head
Missiles flying over your head
If you want to survive get out of bed
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now

Shots ring out in the dad of night
The sergeant calls (stand up and fight)
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now

You've got your orders better shoot on sight
Your finger's on the trigger
But it don't seem right
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now

Night is falling and you just can't see
Is this illusion or reality
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now
You're in the army now
Oh, oh, you're in the army now

Oh, oh, you're in the army now


In the Army Now" is a song by the Dutch duo Rob and Ferdi Bolland, recorded in 1981. The song was also later recorded by the English rock band Status Quo on their 1986 album, In the Army Now, and their version peaked at number 2 in the UK Singles Chart. Slovenian industrial band Laibach recorded a cover-version for their war-themed NATO album in 1994. In 2009, Les Enfoir├ęs covered the song under the title "Ici Les Enfoir├ęs", using the same tune, but changing the lyrics to ones in the French language.
