Universal Soldier Lyrics

He's 5 foot 2 and he's 6 feet 4
He fights with missiles and with spears
He's all of 31 and he's only 17.
Been a soldier for a thousand years
He's a Christian, a Hindu, an atheist, a Jain
A Buddhist, and a Muslim 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 Palestine.
He's fighting for Israel.
And he's fighting for the USA.
And he's fighting for the Russians.
And he's fighting for Iraq.
And he thinks we'll put an end to war this way.

He's fighting for democracy.
He's fighting for his soil
He says its 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 walls.
But without him
How would h***** 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 comes from
Far away no more.

They come from here and there
And you and me,
And brother can't you see,
This is not the way we put the end to war.
