Universal Soldier  Donovan

   He is [F]five feet [G]two, and he's [C]six feet f[a]our,
   he fi[F]ghts with m[G]issiles and with s[C]pears.
   He is [F]all of thirty-o[G]ne, and he's [C]only sevent[a]een.
   's been a s[F]oldier for t[d]housand y[G]ears.[G7]

He's a Catholic, a Hindu, an atheist,a Chein,
a Buddhist and a Babtist and a Jew.
And he knows,he shouldn't kill, and he knows he always will,
kill him for me my friend and and me for you.

And he's fighting for Canada, he's fighting for France.
He's fighting for the U.S.A.,
and he's fighting for the Russians, and he's fighting for Japan,
and he thinks we 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,
and he never sees the writing on the wall.

But without him, how would Hilter kill the people at Dachau,
without him Caesar would have 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.
They come from here and there, and you and me,
and brothers, can't you see,
this is not the way we put an end to war.
