    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.
    He's been a soldier for a thousand years

    He's a catholic, a Hindu, an atheist, a Jain
    A Buddhist, and a Baptist and Jew.
    And he knows he shouldn't kill
    And he knows he always will kill
    You'll 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 the blame
    His orders comes from
    far away no more.

    They come from him.
    And you and me.
    And brothers can't you see.
    This is not the way we put an end to war
