SOLDIER OF FORTUNE

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


            I.  second oldest profession,
                mercenary with his gun.
                called the ultimate weapon,
                he's a soldier of fortune.

           II.  don't tell me of atom bombs.
                ain't seen one since I've been born.
                where's the future coming from?
                guns of soldiers of fortune.

     BRIDGE A:  he won't enlist.
                he's gone underground.
                he's rather pissed
                at what he's found.
                mercenary! mercenary!

          III.  demonstrators in the streets
                carry signs and beat their gums.
                but if you want to get things done,
                be a soldier of fortune.

     BRIDGE B:  no, don't enlist.
                go underground.
                you should be pissed
                with what you've found.
                mercenary!

           IV.  second oldest profession,
                mercenary with his gun.
                if you want to get things done,
                be a soldier of fortune.

       ENDING:  be a soldier of fortune.
                be a soldier . . .
