A Real American Hero
Reporting for duty, Sir.
I shall fight for what you think is right.
You arrange the placement of naval vessels, dogfights and ground battles for my victory.
Our casualties are for your viewing pleasure.
Our weapons are the very best of your imagination and your parentsí budget.
If the outcome is not to your liking, our wounded and dead are forced to fight once more.
In your world, you are the Commander-in-Chief, General, and Secretary of Defense.
You can be whoever you want to be.
Yet, I am just a fatigued soldier in your military with power and might.
I have many duties with little to no pay.
My name is G.I. Joe, A Real American Hero.
Ready for bloodshed, rampage, and of course, Your war.
Good guys and bad show you how to play.
Even your friends take part in this savage tale.
When the hottest new toy appears on the shelves, we are no longer your pride and joy.
Dumped in your toy chest, here rotting away.
At the end of every episode we shared a story with a great message.
Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.
