    Fighting soldiers from the sky
    Fearless men who jump and die
    Men who mean just what they say
    The brave men of the Green Beret

    Silver wings upon their chest
    These are men, America's best
    One hundred men will test today
    But only three win the Green Beret

    Trained to live off nature's land
    Trained in combat, hand-to-hand
    Men who fight by night and day
    Courage peak from the Green Berets

    Ballad Of The Green Beret written by Barry Sadler and Robin Moore.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
    From the upper tier of the Leppings Lane End of the Hillsborough Stadium, I watched the events of that day unfold with horror.
    When the flowers want to oxygen and nutrition, or you’re a wedding or party planner, I will help you too much.

    Early in the morning factory whistle blows,
    Man rises from bed & puts on his clothes.
    Man takes his lunchbox out in the morning light.
    It's the work the working, just the working life.

    Through the mansions of fear,
    Through the mansions of pain,
    See my Daddy walking through them factory gates in the rain.
    Factory takes his hearing, factory gives him life.
    It's the work the working, just the working life.

    End of the day factory whistle cries.
    Men walk through those gates with death in their eyes.
    Factory takes their hearing, factory gives them life.
    It's the work the working, just the working life.
    The work. The work. The working life.

    Factory: Bruce Springsteen
    (However, in my opinion he ruined a beautiful song which was vastly improved by the Flying Pickets version)

    Only in America
    Can a guy from anywhere
    Go to sleep a pauper and wake up a millionaire

    Only in America
    Can a kid without a cent
    Get a break and maybe grow up to be President
    It's slightly tragic that what started as a 60s protest song has ended up a patriotic anthem.

    "Fighting soldiers from the sky" on the other hand was not, before anyone wonders, brought into this world for satirical purposes though there are those who think it's all it's fit for.

    That song reminds me of Five O'clock World, sung by friends of mine, The Vogues.
    Up every mornin' just to keep a job
    I gotta fight my way through the hustlin' mob
    Sounds of the city poundin' in my brain
    While another day goes down the drain

    But it's a five o'clock world when the whistle blows
    No one owns a piece of my time
    And there's a five o'clock me inside my clothes
    Thinkin' that the world looks fine

    Tradin' my time for the pay I get
    Livin' on money that I ain't made yet
    Gotta keep goin', gotta make my way
    While I live for the end of the day

    'Cause it's a five o'clock world when the whistle blows

    No one owns a piece of my time
    And there's a long-haired girl who waits, I know
    To ease my troubled mind

    In the shelter of her arms every thing's okay
    She talks and the world goes slippin' away
    And I know the reason I can still go on
    When every other reason is gone

    In my five o'clock world, she waits for me
    Nothing else matters at all
    'Cause every time my baby smiles at me
    I know that it's all worthwhile
