Rod McKuen - Soldiers Who Want To Be Heroes songtekst
Refrein: Soldiers who wanna be heroes Number practically zero But there are millions Who wanna be civillians (2x). Come and take my oldest son Show him how to shoot a gun Wipe his eyes if he starts to cry When the bullets fly. Give him a rifle, take his hoe Show him a field where he can go To lay his body down and die Without asking why. Refrein (2x). Sticks and stones can break your bones Even names can hurt you But the thing that hurts the most Is when a man deserts you. Don't you think it's time to weed The leaders that no longer lead From the people of the land Who'd like to see there sons again. Refrein (2x). God if men could only see The lesson taught by history That all the singers of this song Cannot write a single wrong. Let all men of good will Stay in the fields they have to till Fill the mouths they have to fill And cast away their arms. Refrein (5x).
