What other army, war, or military-related lyrics can we come up with?  

Although I brought up these two songs already in this thread not too long ago, Teddy Boy had a soldier dad and Ringo's song Silent Homecoming is all about a woman waiting for her husband to come home from war. 

And whilst John wants us to end the war (from the 1972 live version of Come Together at Madison Square Gardens), Miss O'Dell has nothing to say about it.

Well, if we talk about Give Peace A Chance being anti-war, surely we have to mention Imagine ?

Likewise, if we talk about SPLHCB , then surely Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise) is also technically worth a mention...

Submarines are used in the navy... Yellow Submarine ?

Guns are used in the army - Happiness Is A Warm Gun ?

- You're gonna lose that girl:

You're Going To Lose That Girl
If you don't treat her right, my friend
You're going to find her gone

- She loves you:

She said you hurt her so
She almost lost her mind
But now she says she knows
You're not the hurting kind
She says she loves you

John liked his listeners to use their imagination:

Imagine there's no heaven... (Imagine )

Picture yourself in a boat in a river.... (Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds )

Let me take you down.... (Strawberry Fields Forever )

I'm sure there are further examples.

There's the earlyish Lennon/McCartney song, I'll Get You , with these lyrics:

Imagine I'm in love with you
It's easy 'cause I know
I've imagined I'm in love with you
Many, many, many times before

And in the end
The love you take is equal to the love you make
