lyrics

Dad's Army by Paddy Garrigan and The Stroller Priests

Alright Grandad, give it a rest,
we all know that you fought in the war
Alright Grandad, please turn it down,
I think you might have mentioned that one before
He thinks he's out in the trenches
but he's stuck here, guarding the home
In his Dad's Army,
it's a Dad's Army
He's not fighting on the beaches but he's still fighting the war

Alright Grandad, calm yourself down,
I think it might be affecting your health
If watching TV makes you upset
then why don't you go and watch something else
It's just a popularity contest
but you'd think it was the end of the world
For his Dad's Army,
it's a Dad's Army
He's prepared to march on horseback
when perhaps he should admit that he's bored

He used to shout “Up yours, Grandad”
but he doesn't shout it any more
In his Dad's Army,
it's a Dad's Army
He'll be up all night rehearsing
then be too tired to go and fight in the war

I've got to hand it to you Grandad
because I don't want it any more
It's a Dad's Army,
it's a Dad's Army
He's gonna keep on keeping on
though there's no-one left to hear any more

From the album 'I Jumped Ship', released 29 April 2016.

Paddy Garrigan and the Stroller Priests are a three piece band from Ulverston and Lancaster.
Alt-folk/rock. Story songs with great melodies,
wig outs and pleasant squawks. Sea monsters, James Joyce, the afterlife, Dad’s
Army, stoned freaks in the town centre and the universe blues are just some of what awaits the listener, set to a soundtrack grunge, rock’n’roll, mandolin dub and guitar heroics.
