    Lyrics

    I was a PFC on a search patrol huntin' Charlie down
    It was in the jungle wars of '65
    My weapon jammed and I got stuck way out and all alone
    And I could hear the enemy movin' in close outside

    Just then I heard a twig snap and I grabbed my empty gun
    And I dug in scared while I counted down my fate
    And then a big marine with a pair of friendly eyes
    Appeared there at my shoulder and said wait

    If Charlie wants to tangle now he'll have two to dodge
    I said "Well thanks a lot."
    I told him my name and asked him his
    And he said "The boys just call me Camouflage."

    Whoa Camouflage
    Things are never quite the way they seem
    Whoa Camouflage
    I was awfully glad to see this big marine

    Well we fought all night side by side took our battle stance
    And I wondered how the bullets missed this man
    'Cause they seemed to go right through him as if he wasn't there
    And in the mornin' we both took a chance and ran

    And it was near the river bank when the ambush came
    And I thought it was the end and we were had
    Then a bullet with my name on it came buzzin' through a bush
    And the big marine he just swatted it with his hand
    Just like it was a fly

    Whoa Camouflage
    Things are never quite the way they seem
    Whoa Camouflage
    I was awfully glad to see this big marine

    When he led me out of danger I saw my camp and waved goodbye
    He just winked at me from the jungle and was gone
    And when I got back to my HQ I told 'em about my night
    And the battle I'd spent with a big marine named Camouflage

    When I said his name a soldier gulped and a medic took my arm
    And led me to a green tent on the right
    He said "You may be tellin' the truth boy but this here is Camouflage
    And he's been right here since he passed away last night."

    But before he went he said "Semper Fi" and said his only wish
    Was to save a young marine caught in a mirage
    So here take his dog tag son
    I know he'd want you to have it now

    Whoa Camouflage
    Things are never quite the way they seem
    Whoa Camouflage
    I was awfully glad to see this big marine

    Whoa Camouflage
    Things are never quite the way they seem
    Whoa Camouflage
    This was an awfully big Marine

    Whoa Camouflage
    Things are never quite the way they seem
    Whoa Camouflage
    This was an awfully big Marine
