Casualties of War

shark
It’s all hard work and no play
 More than combat, it’s far beyond that
 Cause I got a kill or be killed kind of attack
 Area’s mapped out, there’ll be no, Stratego
 Me and my platoon make a boom wherever we go
 But what are we here for?
Who’s on the other side of the wall?
 Somebody give the President a call
 But I hear warfare scream through the air
 Back to the battlegrounds, it’s war they declare
 A Desert Storm: let’s see who reigns supreme
Something like Monopoly: a government scheme
Go to the Army, be all you can b Another dead soldier?
 Hell no, not me So I start letting off ammunition in every direction
 Allah is my only protection But wait a minute,
Saddam Hussein prays the same and this is
Asia, from where I came I’m on the wrong side, so change the target
Shooting at the general; and where’s the sergeant?
Blame it on John Hardy Hawkins for bringing me to America
Now it’s mass hysteria I get a rush when
I see blood, dead bodies on the floor
CASUALTIES OF WAR!
