UNIVERSAL SOLDIER

He's five foot-two, and he's six feet-four,
He fights with missiles and with spears.
He's all of thirty-one, and he's only seventeen,
Been a soldier for a thousand years.

He's a a Catholic, a Hindu, an Atheist, a Jain,
A Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew.
And he knows he shouldn't kill,
And he knows he always will,
Kill you for me my friend and me for you.

And he's fighting for Canada,
He's fighting for France,
He's fighting for the USA,
And he's fighting for the Russians,
And he's fighting for Japan,
And he thinks we'll put an end to war this way.

And he's fighting for Democracy,
He's fighting for the Reds,
He says it's for the peace of all.
He's the one who must decide,
Who's to live and who's to die,
And he never sees the writing on the wall.

But without him,
How would Hitler have condemned him at Dachau?
Without him Caesar would have stood alone,
He's the one who gives his body
As a weapon of the war,
And without him all this killing can't go on.

He's the Universal Soldier and he really is to blame,
His orders come from far away no more,
They come from here and there and you and me,
And brothers can't you see,
This is not the way we put the end to war.
UNIVERSAL SOLDIER

He's 5' 2" and he's 6' 4"
He fights with missiles and with spears
He's all of 31 and he's always 17
He's been a soldier for 1000 years
He's fighting for Britain and he's fighting for Iraq
He's fighting for the USA
He's fighting for the Russians and he's fighting for Japan
And he thinks he'll put an end to war this way

He's fighting for democracy he's fighting for the reds
He says he's for the peace of all
He's the one who must decide who's to live and who's to die
And he never sees the writing on the wall

But without him how would Hitler have condemned him at De Vaul
Without him Caesar would have stood alone

He's the one who gives his body as the weapon of the war
And without him all this killing can't go on

He's the universal soldier
He really is to blame
His sword has come from far away no more
They come from you and me
And brothers / sisters can't you see
This is not the way we put an end to war?
