Letra Universal Soldier


He's five foot-two, and he's six feet-four
He fights with missiles and with spears
And he's all of thirty-one, but he's only seventeen
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
And he knows he shouldn't kill
But he knows he always will
Kill you 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
But he never sees the writing on the wall

But without him
How would Hitler have condemned 'em at Dachau?
Without him Caesar would've 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 to blame
His orders come from far away no more
Come from here and there and you and me
And brothers, can't you see?
This is not the way we put the end to war
