Camouflage

I was a PFC 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 moving in close outside
Just then I heard a twig snap and I grabbed my empty gun
and I dug it scared while I counted down my fate
And then a big marine, a giant with a pair of friendly eyes
appeared there at my shoulder and said: "Wait"
When he came in close beside me he said
"Don't worry son, I'm here
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"

Woohoohoohoo Camouflage
Things are never quite the way they seem
Woohoohoohoo 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
Coming through the brush and all around our ears
It was then I saw this big marine, a lotta fire in his eyes
And it was strange, but suddenly I forgot my fears

Well we faught all night, and side by side we took our battle stance
And I wondered how the bullets missed this man
'cause they seemed to go right through him, just as if he wasn't there
And (in) the morning we both took a chance and ran
And it was near the riverbank when the ambush came on top of us
And I thought it was the end and we were had
Then a bullet with my name on it came buzzing through a bush
And that big marine, he just swat it with his hands
Just like it was a fly

Woohoohoohoo Camouflage
things are never quite the way they seem
Woohoohoohoo Camouflage
This was an awfully strange marine

And I knew there was something weird about him
'Cause when I turned around he was pulling a big palm tree
Right up out of the ground and swatting those Charlie's with it
From here to Kingdom Come

When he lead me out the danger, I saw my camp and waved goodbye
He just winked at me from the jungle and then was gone
And when I got back to my H.Q. I told them about my night
And the battle I've spent with a big marine named Camouflage
When I said his name, the soldier gulped, and a medic took my arm
And lead me to a green tent on the right
He said: "You may be telling true boy, but this here is Camouflage
And he's been right here since he past away last night
In fact he's been here all week long
But before he went he said: Semper Fi, and said his only wish
Was to save a young marine caught in a barrage
So here, take his dog tag, son. I know he'd want you to have it now"
And we both said a prayer for a big marine named Camouflage

Woohoohoohoo Camouflage
Things are never quite the way they seem
Woohoohoohoo Camouflage
This was an awfully big marine

So next time you're in a jungle fight, and you feel a presence near
Or hear a voice that in your mind will lie
Just be thankful that you're not alone and you've got some company
From a big marine, the boys called Camouflage

Woohoohoohoo Camouflage
Things are never quite the way they seem
Woohoohoohoo Camouflage
This was an awfully big marine

Whohoo Camouflage
Whohoo Camouflage
