I wrote "Universal Soldier" in the basement of The Purple Onion coffee house in Toronto in the early sixties. It's about individual responsibility for war and how the old feudal thinking kills us all. Donovan had a hit with it in 1965.

He's five feet two and he's six feet four
He fights with missiles and with spears
He's all of 31 and he's only 17
He's 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
and 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
and 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 walls

But without him how would Hitler have
condemned him at Dachau
Without him Caesar would have stood alone
He's the one who gives his body
as a weapon to a 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 him, and you, and me
and brothers can't you see
this is not the way we put an end to war.

And here is a funny bit care of CROOKS & LIARS,com about a April Fools Day poll reported on the FAUX NEWS CHANNEL aka "Fox News " in which people voted on the Most Foolish Person in America & no Ann Coulter did not win ; they claimed Brittany Spears won at 33% yet the footage shows President Bush won at 40% so what's wrong with these people & how is it that "FOX" is allowed to call itself a " NEWS CHANNEL" or is it that they are " CHANELLING " the spirit of Senator Joseph Macarthy so here we go:

anyway love you too,
