On  Child soldiers song lyrics: Children of War. Kony LRA puppy soldiers, boys kill fun fighting killing.  Mick Terry  YouTube YouTube,  performed  LIVE  by  MICK TERRY



His first contact with an AK,
at the ripe old age- of five,
was the murder of his father outside- their door
by three rebels having a hey-day
as they plundered his- whole tribe,
all- in the names of politics, God- and war.

His mother, beaten & savaged,
had so bravely tried- to fight,
couldn't save his older brothers, both dragged- away.
Through the next two rainy seasons,
he could barely sleep- at night
'til a warring faction came to make him- their slave.

    CHILDREN OF WAR, just puppy sol-diers.
    A much less visible target, but still all trained- to kill.
    CHILDREN OF WAR, just puppy sol-diers.
    They're just little boys with grownup toys,
    playing war that's all- too real.

They drilled him with wooden rifles,
drugging him to follow commands
with a sergeant barely older than his- own age.
& they showed him tricks of survival
in the forests &- the sands.
And they filled his growing heart with buckets of rage.

    CHORUS

        "Hey, this be fun-. All this killing and fighting.
        Yes, I lose some friends, but we not that close.
        Hey, this be fun-. For sure, it be exciting.
        But it be my two big brothers I miss most."

Through sickness, death & attrition,
he progressed up through- the ranks.
By the age of thirteen, he was Lieuten-ant Duan.
& he never knew both his brothers
were both soldiers in- a tank
that his RPG took out early one- gray dawn.

    CHORUS
