lyrics

Cher Ami
I couldn’t protect you
From those who fancied you
Some kind of archangel

Been to the finest schools
But it’s of limited use
Beside the Argonne hill
Behind enemy lines

If this is a man’s war,
If this is a man’s war,
If this is a man’s war,
Then who’s the animal now?

We’re along 276
Our own artillery is
Raining directly on us,
For heaven’s sake stop it

You were our last chance
Note in a canister attached
They shot down my Cher Ami
Just like all the rest

If this is a man’s war,
If this is a man’s war,
If this is a man’s war,
Then who’s the animal now?
Who’s the animal now?
Who’s the animal now?
Who’s the animal now?

By some act of God
Somehow you still made it home
No surgeon could overcome
All the damage was done

Cher Ami I don’t know how
But you’re weightless now
