Billy, you hero

I've only had a couple of hours sleep after my last night shiftz and therefore only have the briefest of activity. It comes in the form of a song that was playing in my head as I woke. 

In 1974 an anti war song called 'Billy don't be a hero' was released by pop group Paper Lace in the UK, taking it to number one. 
In the US, the same song was released by Bo Donaldson and the Haywoods, also reaching number one. 

Billy don't be a hero, don't be a fool with your life
Billy don't be a hero, come back and make me your wife
And as Billy started to go, she said keep your pretty head low
Billy don't be a hero, come back to me
