lyrics

Perhaps the greatest mummy's boy who ever lived
After all she gave him special powers
On her advice he had a dress made to avoid conscription
But it wasn't long before he couldn't resist

A full metal jacket
A full metal jacket
Not the film, but a breastplate of gold

His best friend was a man who loved him dear
They went to war together chasing a girl
It wasn't long before they stormed the walls for the first time
He was almost unstoppable with weapon in hand

And his full metal jacket
His full metal jacket
Not the film, but a breastplate of gold

The other guy he wasn't a natural, not a jock or a skite
He always felt he had to prove himself
So when his buddy had a meltdown over the latest new girl
He decided to take things into his own hands

In the full metal jacket
The full metal jacket
Before long it was riddled with holes

It's not so far from love to bravery
It's not so far
It's not so far from love to bravery
It's not so far

In a full metal jacket
A full metal jacket
And a fool he was longing to hold
