Service Star Take down that service star, mother Replace it with one that is gold Your son's in the ROTC, ma He'll die when he's ninety years old. Take down that service star, mother And turn that blue star into gold; Your son is a Huey door gunner He'll die 'fore he's twenty years old. Some mothers have sons in the Army; Some mothers have sons on the sea But take down that service star, mother Your boy's in the ROTC. note: Verse 1 from my college days; verses 2 and 3 from The Longest Year, Bowen and Fish RG apr96
