Stevie Wonder - Front Line Şarkı Sözü

ı am a veteran of the war
ı up and joined the army back ın 1964
at sixteen ı just had to be a man at any cost
ı volunteered for vietnam where ı got my leg shot off
ı recall a quote from a movie that said "whos more a man
than a man with a reason thats worth dyin for"

they had me standing on the front line
they had me standing on the front line
they had me standing on the front line
but now ı stand at the back of the line when ıt comes to gettin ahead

they gave me a uniform and a tiny salty pill
to stop the big urge ı might have for the wrong kind of thrill
they put a gun ın my hand and said, "shoot until hes dead"
but ıts hard to kill when please your friend echoes through your head

brought up ın church taught no man should take anothers life
but then put ın a jungle where life has no price

they had me standing on the front line
they had me standing on the front line
they had me standing on the front line
but now ı stand at the back of the line when ıt comes to gettin ahead

back ın the world the paper reads today
another war ıs ın the brewing
but what about the lives of yesterday
and the many happy families that have been ruined

my niece ıs a hooker and my nephews a junkie too
but they say ı have no right to tell them how they should do
they laugh and say "quit bragging" bout the war you should never have been ın
but my mind ıs so brain-washed ıd probbly go back and do ıt again

ı walk the neighborhood parading my purple heart
with a fear of agent orange that no one will stop

they had me standing on the front line
they had me standing on the front line
they had me standing on the front line
but now ı stand at the back of the line when ıt comes to gettin ahead
