  • [Chorus]
    Soldier A, Soldier A
    The unsung hero of anime
    Hip hooray for Soldier A
    He only has one line but saves the day

    He's called upon to grunt or yell or scream (OOOugh, ugh, aaah, oh boy)
    Even if his mouth is never seen (AAH)
    Through the fray with ne'er to say
    He'll lead the way, he's Soldier A

    I'm Soldier A (he's Soldier A)
    Never Soldier B (never Soldier B)
    They tell me if I'm good, I'll be Bystander 3
    (they tell him if he's good he'll be Bystander 3)
    I have the folly every volume needs (augh, AAH)
    But I'll never be mistaken for a lead (no way!)

    [Chorus]
    Soldier A (UGH), Soldier A (he's Soldier A!)
    The unsung hero of anime (oy, augh, oh)
    Hip hooray for Soldier A
    He only has one line but saves the day (woohoo! Yessir!)

    A monster or a mecha or a guy
    Doesn't matter which I'm gonna die (aaaaaah, Ooo)
    Never know what role I'll play
    But for today, I'm Soldier A (1, 2, 3, 4!)
    (Rum…rum)

    Today I threw a fit (today he threw a fit)
    Cause I didn't get the bit
    Part I wanted to do

    Instead of Fanboy 1, I was Sex Offender 2
    (Guh, instead of Fanboy 1, he was Sex Offender 2, oh that's nice!)
    The engineer is changing episodes (changing episodes)
    To find the one where I'm beside the bomb (boooomb)
    When it explodes (AAAH, UUUUH)

    [Chorus]
    Soldier A, Soldier A
    The unsung hero of anime
    Hip hooray for Soldier A
    He only has one line but saves the day (Huh, hah!)

    He's courageous, brave, and dangerously strong (Hoohah, hahaha! Whoo!)
    But he won't be around for very long (Ah, aaah!)
    Cause his platoon gets blown away (ooo, aaauuuugh)
    So let us pray for Soldier A

    The tracks are getting dense (Oooo, getting dense)
    The Walla is intense (Oooo, so intense)
    The director says it's time for my dying to commence
    (well, this is where your character dies with pain and suffering, now let's try one)
    My death rattle simply was sublime (Uh, uuuugh, kah)
    But the engineer blew it so I'll have to do it…One. More. Time! (WAAAAH)

    [Chorus]
    Soldier A, Soldier A
    The unsung hero of anime
    Hip hooray for Soldier A (*sobsobsob*)
    He only has one line but saves the day

    He's called upon to grunt or yell or scream (Augh, ugh, aaah, oooo)
    Even if his mouth is never seen (hoo, yeow!)
    Through the fray he'll lead the way
    So let us pray for
    Will he ever say more? (huhu, haha!)
    Hip hip hooray for Soldier A (Ooo, yeah!) Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
