Lyrics:
The Reservist (What Am I Doing Here?)

Thought it might be a good way to pay for that new car. 
I could get my weekends free, and the army base isn’t that far.  
Besides I’d never done much for my country before.  
Now I don’t know what I’m doing, or who I’m doing it for.

(chorus)
What  am I doing here?
Why do they look at me with hatred and fear?  
This is just a weekend job, it’s not my career.  
What am  I doing here?


I know there was blood shed on the streets of New York
Some call it madness, some call it a war
But people every bit as blameless die here every day
And no one can tell me it makes anyone safe.

(repeat chorus)

Nobody I’ve met here has rich folks back home.
Just hard working families, who’ve earned what they own
Now my tour’s been extended, they say freedom’s at stake
But I think we’re killing and dying for some rich man’s mistake

(repeat chorus)

I’ve got a brand new son, he was born last week.  
I just got the snapshots.  Would you like to see ‘em?
I thought for sure I would be there to hold my darling’s hand
Now I just hope that I can live to see my son grow to a man

What  am I doing here?
Why do they look at me with hatred and fear?  
This is just a weekend job, it’s not my career.  
What am  I doing here?
What are we doing here?
