Silver wings upon their chests,
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 mean just what they say,
The brave men of 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.
