|Thank You for Your Service|
|"Thank you for your service..."|
Is that just something you say,
Parroted with as much feeling as,
"Now, you have a real nice day"?
Do you actually care about what I did
And how Iíve been affected?
Would it matter to you in the slightest
If my life was now all disconnected?
Once youíve said your catch phrase
And Iíve passed on out of your view,
Do you really give a fat ratís ass
If my skies are gray or blue?
Well, you do seem like a nice guy,
So I guess itís not just a platitude,
But words spoken with real emotion:
A sincere expression of gratitude.
Besides, if you want to know...
If I told whatís honest and true,
Iíd have to confess I did it for myself
More than I did it for you.
