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 Athiest A Jain, a Buddhist, 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 U.S.A. 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 And he never sees the writing on the wall But without him how could 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 Yes, 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 we put an end to war
