One Day, whilst the soldiers try out some close-harmonies (a song)

Soldier: Oh, the Sergeant-Major’s daughter – goes by the name of-

Chorus: June.

Soldier: She spends her life in wonder, just looking at the-

Chorus: Moon.

Soldier: The Sergeant-Major hasa pipe, and he plays a merry-

SFX pipe notes – very short, not that merry.

Chorus: Tune.

And now his song is over. It ended much to-

Chorus: quickly.

Soldier (spoken): Sorry?

Chorus: Soooooon.

Soldier: Mmmmm.

SFX Soldier walking off.

1st Chorus: Right lads, he’s gone. A one, a two, a one, two, three, four-

Chorus – with hand claps / rifle loading noises (eventually fades out):

Four letter word just to get me along

It’s a difficulty and I’m biting on my tongue

And I I keep stalling, keeping me together

People around gotta find something to say now

Holding back, everyday the same

Don’t wanna be a loner

Listen to me, oh no I never say anything at all

But with nothing to consider they forget my name (ame, ame, ame)

They call me ‘Bell’

Private Bell: Present!

Chorus: They call me ‘Stacey’

Lance Cpl Stacey: Present!

Chorus: They call me ‘her’

Private Her: Present!

Chorus: They call me ‘Jane’

Corporal Jane: Present!

Chorus:

That’s not my name

That’s not my name

That’s not my name

That’s not my name

They call me ‘quiet girl’

But I’m a riot Mary, Jo, Lisa

Always the same

That’s not my name…
