My Little Soldier

I don't want to run
The risk of offending you
Cause I'm a gentleman
At least I'm pretending to be
Most civilized, polite and appealing
But I've got to find a more delicate way
To tell you how I'm feeling

My little soldier is standing at attention
My little cowboy says yippie-oh ki-ayy
My little pirate is walking down the gangplank
My little sailor says anchors a-weigh

My little clown is about to do some juggling
My little shortstop is stepping up to the plate
My little pasta is just about al dente
My little Alexander is Great

The Eiffel Tower no longer stands in Paris
And the Colossos of Rhodes tain't there no more
Baby I can prove that the Great Pyramid has moved
Cause I'm feeling things I've never felt before

I'm a policeman so watch out for my nightstick
I'm a conductor, I'm waving my baton
And I'm a plumber who's got a leaky faucet
I do the pole vault in the decathalon

My little soldier is standing at attention
My little jack has jumped out of the box
My little key is looking for the keyhole
And I'll be there when opportunity knocks

My little soldier is standing at attention
My little soldier is standing at attention
My little soldier is standing at attention
And baby, that's the way I feel
