I’m a Soldier
By CK Emanuel
To the tune of: I’m a Policeman Dressed in Blue
I’m a soldier, dressed just so.
TOUCH FOREHEAD WITH HAND (PALM DOWN) AND GIVE A SALUTE
TUG AT SHIRT AT THE SHOULDERS
This is what you should know:
HANDS OUT AT SIDES, PALMS UP
TAP FINGER TO TEMPLE
I leave my family and my town,
to help keep you safe and sound.
The work is hard, but it is fine–
GIVE A “THUMBS UP”
An honor to have a job like mine.
PUT HAND OVER CHEST
