Eagle and the Bear

 

I will fight and die for freedom

Up against an eagle or a bear

And I will help my brother and we'll sink or swim together

If you don't like it mister, I don't care

 

'Cause I have served with honor in the Army

I have been a soldier overseas

I have seen my Fatherland stagger like a dying man

Blinded and bewildered by disease

 

And I ain't gonna take it any longer

I can't look around it anymore

I'll defend what I believe in a land of liberty

Like my father did before

 

And I'll just pray to God for Nicaragua

And the sorrow of El Salvador today

And I'll say until we free Mandela

All the world will be in chains

 

I will fight and I will die for freedom

Up against an eagle or a bear

I will help my brother and we'll sink or swim together

If you don't like it mister, I don't care
