    Answer to the Green Beret
    By Denny Newby
    Bronze Star Recipient with a Combat “V”

    We call our troops U.S. Marines
    Dirty rough and fighten mean
    To Viet Nam we come to stay
    Couldn’t care less about the Green Beret
    We stalk the paddies, both day and night
    We need no hate or reason to fight
    We have no wings upon our chests
    We’re fighting men, our countries best
    With steel pots upon our heads
    We fight like hell and eat hot lead
    So keep your caps and silver wings
    We’ll ship you home with all those things
    We search the villies and chase V.C.
    We fight the Cong to make men free
    One hundred men over ran today
    We saved them all, the Green Beret
    I’ve seen Marines who gave their lives
    So the Green Berets could see their wives
    If I die in this far land, I hope it will be for a better man
    The poor young wife, she need not wait
    Her brave Marine has met his fate
    For the Corps, that’s what he’ll give
    I know this song won’t be a hit
    But a good Marine don’t give a ****
    For when it comes to glory and fame
    We’ll kick your ass and take your name
    So let them jump and sing their song
    We’ll scout rice paddies and kill the Cong
    With the troops we fight each day
    Since 1775 it’s been that way
    So wise up doggies, with the Green Beret
    For we’ll still be here when you fade away.
