170

Slapp av me komme snart igjenRelax, we'll soon be returning
Du vett me får tilstrekkelig med stipendYou know we'll get sufficient funding
Nå går eg inn som frivillig soldatNow I enlist as a voluntary soldier
Når eg går ut har eg blitt farWhen I go out I've become a father
Det var kveld og det blei dag og kveld igjenIt was night and it became day and night again
Eg skreiv brev på brev men eg fekk aldri brev igjenI wrote letter after letter but never got one back
Et halvt år med skudd og åpne sårHalf a year with shots and open wounds
Et halvt år. Herre Gud, tiå går så seintHalf a year. God, time goes by so slowly
  
Takk Gud for sanitetens personalThank God for the medical corps
For de syr samen rekrutt og general'Cause they sew together recruits and generals
Dagen kom, eg venta på signalThe day came and I waited for a signal
Eg fekk min siste ordre i frå høgaste befal og han skreikAnd I got my last order from the highest in command, and he yelled
170 gå å sjå om det er klart170 go out and see if it is clear
Nei general, la meg få sleppa generalNo, general, spare me.
Det er lett for deg å senda inn en frivillig soldatIt's easy for you to send in a voluntary soldier
men kven skal ta seg av min hustru og mitt barn?but who'll take care of my wife and my child?
  
170 er det klart, er det klart?170 is it clear, is it clear?
170 me vente på et svar!170 we're waiting for a response!
