    Fighting soldiers from the sky
    Fearless men who jump and die
    Men who mean just what they say
    The brave men of the Green Beret

    Silver wings upon their chest
    These are men, America’s best
    One hundred men we’ll test today
    But only three win the Green Beret

    Trained to live, off nature’s land
    Trained in combat, hand to hand
    Men who fight by night and day
    Courage deep, from the Green Beret

    Silver wings upon their chest
    These are men, America’s best
    One hundred men we’ll test today
    But only three win the Green Beret

    Back at home a young wife waits
    Her Green Beret has met his fate
    He has died for those oppressed
    Leaving her this last request

    Put silver wings on my son’s chest
    Make him one of America’s best
    He’ll be a man they’ll test one day
    Have him win the Green Beret
