THE DOORS : THE UNKNOWN SOLDIER [1967]

Ένα αντιπολεμικό τραγούδι [όχι μόνο για τον πόλεμο του Βιετνάμ που διεξαγόταν την εποχή εκείνη] των Doors. Πολλοί ραδιοφωνικοί σταθμοί αρνήθηκαν να το παίξουν τότε. Από το άλμπουμ τους Waiting for the Sun.

An antiwar song [not just for the Vietnam War going on at the time] by The Doors. Many radio stations refused to play it at the time due to its controversial content. From their 1967 album Waiting for the Sun.


Wait until the war is over
And we’re both a little older
The unknown soldier
Breakfast where the news is read
Television children fed
Unborn living, living, dead
Bullet strikes the helmet’s head
And it’s all over
For the unknown soldier
It’s all over
For the unknown soldier
Hut
Hut
Hut ho hee up
Hut
Hut
Hut ho hee up
Hut
Hut
Hut ho hee up
Comp’nee
Halt
Preeee-zent!
Arms!
Make a grave for the unknown soldier
Nestled in your hollow shoulder
The unknown soldier
Breakfast where the news is read
Television children fed
Bullet strikes the helmet’s head
And, it’s all over
The war is over
It’s all over
The war is over
Well, all over, baby
All over, baby
Oh, over, yeah
All over, baby
Wooooo, hah-hah
All over
All over, baby
Oh, woa-yeah
All over
All over
Heeeeyyyy

    I’m very familiar with the song, but I’d never seen the video. Powerful stuff.

        So was my husband. As far as I know, we still have all their albums.

    It’s a great album.
    The song is perfect. No wonder it was banned.
