Universal Soldier

He's the Universal Soldier sitting in his soldier boy
He is fighting against our worst fears.
The aliens and terrorists he kills without a joy,
he's been a soldier for a thousand years.

He flies across the galaxies to fight Forever War.
He only wants us all to live in peace.
But true hate and violence is in the human core,
oh will the hate and warring ever cease?

He's the Universal Soldier but he is not to blame,
towards our leaders we must turn our looks.
So teach all your children that the war is not the way,
and make them read Joe Haldeman's books.
Oh make them read Joe Haldeman's books!
