Lyrics

The chorus from the apple tree (still a soldier)

 

He takes his crossword to the window in the sun (because)

hes not afraid to still have a little fun (he?ll)

wake up a tea cup with a cheeky drop of rum (because)

hes not afraid to still have a little fun

he fills the day with documentaries

he turns in early for the early morning chorus from the apple tree

he gets up early for the early morning chorus from the apple tree

 when mister blackbird sings

 

hes still a soldier at heart

hes still the young pup drinkin mad dog after dark

hes still a soldier at heart

he just likes to put his feet up and he likes to feed the mallards in the park

still a soldier at heart (still a soldier)

still a soldier at heart (still a soldier)

still a soldier at heart (still a soldier)

still a soldier just a soldier with no battles left to start

 

hes got his own stool down the local water hole (you know it)

used to be moes but moes not with us anymore (he)

drinks a gill and dons his specs to check his bets (he)

keeps his distance from the kid with no respect

the street lamps tell him when it?s time to leave

he turns in early for the early morning chorus from the apple tree

he gets up early for the early morning chorus from the apple tree

 when mister blackbird sings

 

hes still a soldier at heart

hes still the young pup drinking mad dog after dark

hes still a soldier at heart

he just likes to put his feet up and he likes to feed the mallards in the park

still a soldier at heart (still a soldier)

still a soldier at heart (still a soldier)

still a soldier at heart (still a soldier)

still a soldier just a soldier with no battles left to start 

 

he hears the ghost of the kid he used to be

hes shooting off his big mouth and he?s stamping his feet

he hears the ghost of the kid he used to be

hes walking home to the early morning chorus from the apple tree

hes just getting in to the early morning chorus from the apple tree

 

still a soldier at heart

still a soldier at heart

still a soldier at heart 

still a soldier at heart

when mister blackbird sings
