Usually unwanted guests to the castle were sent a message from afar.
If they just wouldn't get it - well there was still the shower...
Over the heather the wet wind blows
Lice in my tunic, and a cold in my nose
The rain comes falling out of the sky
I'm a soldier on the wall and I don't know why
When I'm old, and I only got one eye
There'll be no more soldiering, just lookin' at the sky
I'm a soldier on the wall, I'm a soldier on the wall,
A soldier on the wall, and I don't know why!
(Roman Wall Blues by Sensational Alex Harvey Band)
