You welcomed me back
From World War II
I went overseas
And returned to you

I’m a veteran
For you I served
The women were fired
My job preserved

In every town
Both large and small
There was a parade
To honor us all

I’m a veteran
Of Viet Nam
I went to war
For Uncle Same

A baby killer
Is what you said
Innocent people
I wanted them dead

The war was wrong
Is what you claimed
Thousands of soldiers
Were killed and maimed

Many years later
Wars haven’t ended
Now I'm a hero
Who you once offended
