"Camouflage" by Stan Ridgway

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFYxCIr-Byo

I was a PFC on a searchpatrol, hunting Charlie down.
It was in the jungle, wars of '65.
My weapon jammed and I got stuck way out and all alone
and I could hear the enemy moving in close outside.
Just then I heard a twig snap, and I grabbed my empty gun
and I dug it scared while I counted down my faith.
And then a big marine, a giant with a pair of friendly eyes
appeared there at my shoulder and said: "Wait"
When he came in close beside me, he said: "Don't worry son, I'mhere..
if Charlie wants to tango, now he'll have two to dodge.
I said: "Well, thanks a lot". I told him my name and asked himhis.
And he said"The boys just call me Camouflage"

Woohoohoohoo Camouflage,
things are never quite the way they seem.
Woohoohoohoo Camouflage,
I was awfully glad to see this big marine.

Well I was gonna ask him where he came from,
when we heard the bullets fly,
coming through the brush and all around our ears.
It was then I saw this big marine, a lotta fire in his eyes.
And it was strange, but suddenly I forgot my fears.

Well we faught all night, side by side, we took ourbattlestands.
And I wondered how the bullets missed this man.
Cus they seemed to go right through him, just as if he wasn'tthere
and the morning we both took a chance and ran.
And it was near the riverbank when the ambush came on top of us
and I thought it was the end, we were had.
Then a bullet with my name on it came buzzing through a bush
and that big marine, he just swat it, with his hands.
Just like it was a fly.

Woohoohoohoo Camouflage,
things are never quite the way they seem.
Woohoohoohoo Camouflage,
This was an awfully strange marine.

And I knew there was something weird about him,
cus when I turned around he was pulling a big palmtree
right up out of the ground and swatting those Charlie's withit,
from here to Kingdom Kong.

When he lead me out the danger, I saw my camp and wavedgoodbye,
he just winked at me from the jungle and then was gone.
And when I got back to my H.Q. I told them about my night,
and the battle I've spent with a big marine named Camouflage.
When I said his name, the soldier gulped, and a medic took myarm
and lead me to a green tent on the right.
He said: "You may be telling true boy, but this here isCamouflage.
And he's been right here since he past away last night.
In fact he's been here all week long.
But before he went he said: "Semper Fi", and said his onlywish,
was to save a young marine caught in a mirage.
So here, take his dogtag, son. I know he'd want you to have itnow"
And we both said a prayer for a big marine named Camouflage.

Woohoohoohoo Camouflage,
things are never quite the way they seem.
Woohoohoohoo Camouflage,
This was an awfully big marine.

So next time you're in a junglefight, and you feel a presencenear
or hear a voice that in your mind will lie,
just be thankful that you're not alone and you've got somecompany,
from a big marine, the boys called Camouflage

Woohoohoohoo Camouflage,
things are never quite the way they seem.
Woohoohoohoo Camouflage,
This was an awfully big marine.

whoho Camouflage

Love Floyd, love Rodger, and his dad died at the anzio bridgehead which makes this all the more special.
"the Anzio bridgehead was held for the price / Of a few hundred ordinary lives" as the Tigers eventually broke through the British defence, killing all of C Company, including Eric Waters.

A Swiss Chant from the time of Napoleon when they were hired as Mercenaries as well as dedicated to the Swiss Guard who died slaughtered during the french revolution as they defended King Louis XVI as he made his escape at the beginning of the revolution.

Drina March, Serbian army WWI

(mainly it was instrumental, but later on after WW2 the words were added which really at least for me do not fit into this)






song was just perfectly added in montage into this Wienna concert video, but they didn't performed it,..
