Service Star

Take down that service star, mother
Replace it with one that is gold
Your son's in the ROTC, ma
He'll die when he's ninety years old.

Take down that service star, mother
And turn that blue star into gold;
Your son is a Huey door gunner
He'll die 'fore he's twenty years old.

Some mothers have sons in the Army;
Some mothers have sons on the sea
But take down that service star, mother
Your boy's in the ROTC.

note: Verse 1 from my college days; verses 2 and 3 from The
   Longest Year, Bowen and Fish
