My Man O’ War

Subject: Chesty Puller, Music: Greg Dean, Vocal and Lyrics: Jim Smith, Backing vocals: Jules Peters

Now let me tell you about man
Whose seen a lot of war
Served his country proud
Yeah – hardcore

Rising from a Private
To a General – three stars
Loved by all his men
Hell, everyone called him sir

Never lost a battle
Never said pull back
His definition of retreat?
Just a different lie of attack

He fought in rebel jungles
On the beaches and in the sea
He killed at least a thousand men
Huh, that really impresses me!

Well his fought in every place
Where he could take a gun
From the tundra to the frozen ice
To where the ground's burnt by the sun

No you don't go backwards
When your enemy's on the run
No you don't go backwards
When you're having this much fun

He's a hero (heads up)
Such a hero (heads down)
He's our hero (my man 'o war)

He's a hero (heads up)
Such a hero (heads down)
He's our hero (my man 'o war)

Amidst a bloody battlefield
Violence all around
Tearing his way through enemy lines
Like a hungry, junk-yard hound

Had all them fancy badges
Pinned across his vest
'Pacify is to Pussify'
Tattooed across his chest

Well his fought in every place
Where he could take a gun
From the tundra to the frozen ice
To where the ground's burnt by the sun

No you don't go backwards
When your enemy's on the run
No you don't go backwards
When you're having this much fun

He's a hero
Such a hero
He's our hero (my man 'o war)

He's a hero
Such a hero
He's our hero (hardcore)

Well his fought in every place
Where he could take a gun
From the tundra to the frozen ice
To where the ground's burnt by the sun

No you don't go backwards
When your enemy's on the run
No you don't go backwards
When you're having this much fun

He's a hero (heads up)
Such a hero (heads down)
He's our hero (my man 'o war)

He's a hero (heads up)
Such a hero (heads down)
He's our hero
Yeah, c'mon
