Universal Soldier (Buffy Ste. Marie) He's five foot two and he's six foot four 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 and a Jane A Buddhist, a Baptist and a Jew And he knows he shouldn't kill and he knows he always will Kill you for me, my friends, and me for you 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 he'll put an end to war this way He's fighting for democracy, he's fighting for the Reds He's fighting for the good of all He's the one who must decide who's to live and who's to die And he never reads the writing on the wall He's the universal soldier and he is really is to blame His orders come from far away no more They come from him and you and me and brothers, can't you see This is not the way to put an end to war Copyright Caleb Music see also Universal Pacifist sung by Buffy Ste.
