"She's Got Medals" is a 1967 song by English musician David Bowie from his self-titled debut album David Bowie.

Lyrics

She'd walk through the door and she'd set up the drinks on the house
She played a good game of darts, and the men slapped her back
And never took her out
She wore a trench coat, khaki
Her hobnail boots were full of holes
She's got medals
Her mother called her "Mary," but she changed her name to "Tommy,"
She's a one... oh
She went and joined the army
Passed the medical; don't ask me how it's done
They sent her to the front line
Fighting for her country's name
She's got medals
She got very tired of picking up girls
Cleaning her gun, and shaving her curls
Then the enemy dropped a bomb
Survivors there were none
People say that when the moon is full and all the stars have gone to bed
You can see her ghost, but that's a lie, because the naughty woman isn't dead
She'd deserted on the previous morning
Replaced her uniform with dresses, silk and green
Called herself Eileen
Came to London town
Now she's settled down
She's got medals
