The Unknown Soldier The Doors

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!

(Gunfire)

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

The song was made to protest the Vietnam War

The Doors made this song while they were on tour in 1967

The Doors also made the song Five to One, Light my Fire, and Riders on the Storm.

I think the song means the soldiers go home from Vietnam, but it was to late for some of the known soldiers that died during the war.
