They'll Make a Man Out of Me

Marsha Williams
Language: English



Seventeen years old my baby came to me
Said: « Daddy I want to be all I can be
Gonna join the Guard, Army, Air Force or Marines
Fight for our flag, keep our country free

It's twenty thousand dollars the minute I sign
I'll get the new truck I want It's just a matter time
Don't you worry about me daddy I'll be just fine
The wars nearly over, I'll never see the front line

I've thought about it and it's just what I need
I'll see the whole world they'll make a man out of me

They'll make a man out of me,
They'll make a man out of me,
They'll make a man out of me »

Six months in he's on a plane to Iraq
I knew in my heart that he would never be back
One month later they came to me
On behalf of the United States military

They brought me a flag and all of their sympathy
But they did not bring my baby boy back to me

Now in my dreams he comes to me
Says «Daddy, I want to be all I can be
I've thought about it and it's just what I need
I'll see the whole world, they'll make a man out of me

They'll make a man out of me,
They'll make a man out of me,
They'll make a man out of me,
They'll make a man out of me...»
