"Soldier of 3 Armies" as written by Joakim Broden and Thorbjoern Lars Englund....
Started out as a reserve
Soon promoted when deserved
And the legend has begun

With a bounty on his head
The red army wants him dead
Soviet enemy number one

Cross of Mannerheim
Addicted to the war game
Never-ending flame
Victory reclaimed

Oh, we remember, we remember, we remember

Shout, Lauri Törni's name
A soldier of three armies knows the game
Keeps their echo from the past
Rise from beyond your grave
Son of Finland and the Green Beret
May you rest in peace at last
Lauri Allan Törni

Across the water a new start
War still beating in his heart
A new legend has been born

Started out as a reserve
Soon promoted when deserved
Changed his name to Larry Thorne

Cross of Mannerheim
Addicted to the war game
Never-ending flame
Victory reclaimed

Oh, we remember, we remember, we remember

Shout, Lauri Törni's name
A soldier of three armies knows the game
Keeps their echo from the past
Rise from beyond your grave
Son of Finland and the Green Beret
May you rest in peace at last

From the Finnish lakes
Into Germany and USA
All the wars he came across
Cross of Mannerheim
An iron cross, a bronze star, purple heart
One distinguished flying cross

Shout, Lauri Törni's name
A soldier of three armies knows the game
Keeps their echo from the past
Rise from beyond your grave
Son of Finland and the Green Beret
May you rest in peace at last
Lauri Allan Törni
