    "Universal Soldier" Lyrics

    Glen Campbell

    (Buffy St. Marie)

    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
    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 a Jew
    He knows he shouldn't kill
    But he knows he always will

    Kill you, my friend, for me and me for you.

    He's fighting for Canada, he's fighting for France
    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 that way.

    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
    But 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
    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 and he really is to blame
    His orders come from far away no more
    They come from him, and you, and me
    And brother, can't you see
    This is not the way to put an end to war...
