חייל אוניברסלי / Donovan

פורסם ב-23/11/2010, הולעז ע"י עדי שחטר בהשראת Universal Soldier  

הוא רק בן עשרים וכבר בן שלושים
הוא נלחם בחניתות ובטילים
מטר שמונים ומטר שישים
הוא חייל כבר מאות שנים.

הוא פגאני, בודהיסט, אתאיסט, יהודי
קתולי, פרוטסטנטי, מוסלמי
הוא יודע שזה רע אך ימשיך לקטול אותי
למענֵךְ, ואותְךָ למעני.

הוא נלחם למען קנדה, למען יוון
ונלחם לצד הרוסים
הוא נלחם בשביל צרפת ונלחם בשביל יפן
וחושב שכך שלום עושים.

הוא נלחם על דמוקרטיה ולצד האדומים
הוא אומר: לשלום יש מחיר
הוא מחליט מי למוות ומי לחיים
והוא לא רואה את הכתובת על הקיר.

אך לולא הוא, היטלר לא היה משמיד המונים
וקיסר לא חוצה את הרוביקון
הוא מוסר את גופו כבשר תותחים
ובלעדיו מלחמה לא תיכון.

הוא חייל אוניברסלי ככל החיילים
ובו, רק בו האשמה
הוא פועל בִּשְׁמֵנוּ, אתם לא רואים
לא כך נשים קץ למלחמה.

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
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,
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 Hitler have condemned him 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 the end to war

This song was written by Buffy St Marie. She wrote it in Toronto airport after she witnessed wounded soldiers being brought back from Vietnam. it was when America was still pretending it wasn't involved in Vietnam. Here is a quote from her website about this song: "It's about the personal responsibility of all of us, because we can't blame just the soldier for the war, or just the career military officer, or just the politician. We have to blame ourselves too since we are living in an era where we actually elect our politicians".
