Stan Ridgway - Camouflage

I was a P.F.C. on a search patrol, huntin' 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 movin' in close outside
Just then I heard a twig snap and I grabbed my empty gun
And I dug in scared while I counted down my fate
And then a big Marine¨C¨Ca giant, with a pair of friendly eyes¨C¨C
Appeared there at my shoulder and said ";Wait.";

When he came in close beside me, he said ";Don't worry, son, I'm here¨C¨C
If Charlie wants to tangle now, he'll have two to dodge";
I said, ";Well, thanks a lot!"; I told him my name and asked him his
And he said ";The boys just call me Camouflage";

Woah-oh-oh-oh, Camouflage
Things are never quite the way they seem
Woah-oh-oh-oh, 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
Comin' through the brush, and all around our ears
It was then I saw this big Marine light a fire in his eye
And it was strange, but suddenly, I forgot my fears

Well, we fought all night, side by side, we took our battle stance
And I wondered how the bullets missed this man
'Cause they seemed to go right through...(more)
