Stevie Wonder’s

Frontline

"Stevie Wonder's Original Musiquarium"


I am a veteran of the war.


I up and joined the army back in 1964


At 16 I just had to be a man at any cost


I volunteered for Vietnam where I got my leg shot off


I recall a quote from a movie that said "who's more a man Than a man with a reason that's worth dyin' for"

Here Stevie is trying to say fighting in the war is a reason to die.


They had me standing on the front line


They had me standing on the front line


They had me standing on the front line


But now I stand at the back of the line when it comes to gettin' ahead


They gave me a uniform and a tiny salty pill


To stop the big urge I might have for the wrong kind of thrill

Many soldiers took drugs during the war for a thrill, to ease their pain.


They put a gun in my hand and said, "shoot until he's dead"


But it's hard to kill when 'please your friend' echoes through your head


Brought up in church taught no man should take another's life


But then put in a jungle where life has no price


They had me standing on the front line


They had me standing on the front line


They had me standing on the front line


But now I stand at the back of the line when it comes to gettin' ahead


Back in the world the paper reads today


Another war is in the brewing


But what about the lives of yesterday


The Brady Bunch was a popular television show during the time period of the Vietnam War

And the many happy families that have been ruined


My niece is a hooker


Many people turned to drugs from stressing during wartime.

and my nephew's a junkie too


Due to long periods of time together, the soldiers bonded as brothers, united as one.

But they say I have no right to tell them how they should do


They laugh and say "quit bragging" 'bout the war you should never have been in


After the war, many

Soldiers suffered

with nightmares,

flashbacks, and

experienced extreme paranoia if ever hearing noise resembling a gun shot.

But my mind is so brain-washed I'd prob'bly go back and do it again


I walk


the neighborhood parading my purple heart

The purple heart was a U.S. military decoration awarded to members of the armed forces who have been wounded in action.

They had me standing on the front line


Agent orange took down vast regions of the dense jungle.

They had me standing on the front line


But now I stand at the back of the line when it comes to gettin' ahead


They had me standing on the front line


The war casualties of the Vietnam War was 58,193.

They had me standing on the front line


They had me standing on the front line


But now I stand at the back of the line when it comes to gettin' ahead…
