Ballad of the Green Berets
Fighting soldiers from the sky
Fearless men who jump and die,
Men who mean just what they say.
The brave men of the Green Beret.
cho: Silver wings upon their chests,
These are men, America's best.
100 men we'll test today
And only three win the Green Beret.
Trained to live off nature's land
Trained to combat hand to hand
Men who fight by night and day
Courage take from the Green Beret.
Back at home a young wife waits
Her Green Beret has met his fate
He has died for those oppressed
Leaving her this last request:
Put silver wings on my son's chest
Make him one of America's best
He'll be a man they'll test one day
Have him win the Green Beret.
