Universal Soldier
Buffy Ste. Marie

Hes five feet two and hes six feet four,
he fights with missiles and with spears.
Hes all of thirty one and hes only seventeen,
hes been a soldier for a thousand years.

Hes a catholic, a Hindu, an atheist, a Jain
A Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew.
And he knows he shouldnt kill, and he knows he always will
Kill you for me my friend and me for you.

And hes fighting for Canada, and hes fighting for France
Hes fighting for the USA.
And hes fighting for the Russians, and hes fighting for Japan
And he thinks well put an end to war this way.

And hes fighting for democracy, hes fighting for the reds
He says its for the peace of all.
Hes the one that must decide whos to live and whos to die.
And he never sees the writing on the wall.

But without him how would Hitler have condemned them at Dachau
Without him Caesar would have stood alone.
Hes the one who gives his body as a weapon of the war
And without him all this killing cant go on.

Hes 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 cant you see,
This is not the way we put an end to war.
