"I am but a little boy, Waiting to grow old. I want to see the land, I want to know the sky. I am but a little boy, Dressed in a grown man's suit. His life was given to me, A burden for my shoulders. I am but a little boy, Dressed in full war regalia. These medals slow my step, This rifle makes me stumble. I am but a little boy, But I've walked these men's steps. Their lives lead to roads mine does not, For I am but a little boy."
