Biography

The song is sung from the perspective of a gung-ho young man who has been drafted. When he reports for duty, however, the young man recites a list of reasons why he can’t serve, including poor vision, flat feet, a ruptured spleen, allergies and asthma, back pain, addiction to multiple drugs, his college enrollment, his disabled aunt, and the fact that he carries a purse. [2][3] (One historian of the draft resistance movement wrote that Ochs “described nearly every available escape from conscription”.[3]) As the song ends, the young man tells the sergeant that he’ll be the first to volunteer for “a war without blood or gore”.[2][4]
