We're training the Land Girls Army
To work on a boat as the crew
But we think that the Government's barmy!
'Cos this lot ain't got a clue
For they can't hold a tiller, they won't open gates
To be out in all weather is something they hate!
We're training the Land Girls Army
But they're no use to me or you!

We're training the Land Girls Army
Give them something to do
But they can't tell a boat from a butty
And engines is soemthing quite new
Well they can't tie a knot or throw a rope
And getting in a lock, for them there's no hope
But we're training the Land Girls Army
So what's a poor fellow to do

We're training the Land Girls Army
And just between me and you
P'rhaps Government's not so barmy
It's our secret weapon too!
Our intelligence agents will translate the plot
When Hitler find this lot's up the cut
And we're training the Land Girls Army
He'll not bother us - that's true!

We're training the Land Girls Army
By God it's not easy to do
But I think things are gonna get stormy
For they've asked for a bath and a loo
And we can't understand them 'cos they talks so posh
I think I would rather be fightin' the Bosch!
Than be training the Land Girls Army
I'm off up the cut - Tooleoo!
