The little that he made

Four bright eyes gazed longingly

He gave them toffees and played their games

Why was he friends with the children

Leave them alone or we'll get sore

The little bombardier

Em                   C
Packed his bags, his heart in pain
D                G
Wiped a tear and caught a train
Bm                    Cm
Not to be seen in the town again
C    D     G
The little bombardier
