むかしぼくが優秀な軍隊の 隊員だったとき 
月夜の晩にルイジアナで演習をした
隊長は ぼくらに 河を歩いて渡れと言った 
  ■ぼくらは 膝まで 泥まみれ
  ■だが 隊長は言った 進め

隊長危ない ひきかえそうと  軍曹が言った 
行くんだ軍曹 俺は前にここを渡ったぞ
ぬかるみだけど頑張って歩き続けろ
  ■ぼくらは 腰まで 泥まみれ
  ■だが 隊長は言った 進め

隊長こんな重装備では 誰も泳げません  
そんな弱気でどうするか 俺についてこい
わしらに必要なのは ちょっとした決心さ
  ■ぼくらは 首まで 泥まみれ
  ■だが 隊長は言った 進め

月が消え 溺れながらの叫びが聞こえて  
隊長のヘルメットが水に浮かんだ
みんな引き返そう と 軍曹が言った
  ■ぼくらは 泥沼から抜け出して
  ■隊長だけ 死んでった

裸になって水にもぐり死体を見つけた  
泥にまみれた隊長は きっと知らなかったのだ
前に渡ったときよりも ずっと深くなってたのを
  ■ぼくらは 泥沼から抜け出した
  ■進め と言われたが

これを聞いて何を思うかはあなたの自由だ 
あなたはこのまま静かに生き続けたいだろう
でも新聞読むたび よみがえるのはあの時の気持ち
  ■ぼくらは 腰まで 泥まみれ
  ■だが バカは叫ぶ 進め

  ●ぼくらは 腰まで 泥まみれ
  ●だが バカは叫ぶ 進め
  ●ぼくらは 腰まで 首まで
  ●やがてみんな 泥まみれ 
  ●だが バカは叫ぶ 進め!

▼Deep in the Big Muddy(原詩) by Pete Seeger
It was back in nineteen forty-two,
I was a member of a good platoon.
We were on maneuvers in-a Loozianna,
One night by the light of the moon.
The captain told us to ford a river,
That's how it all begun.
We were -- knee deep in the Big Muddy,
■But the big fool said to push on.
The Sergeant said, "Sir, are you sure,
This is the best way back to the base?"
"Sergeant, go on! I forded this river
'Bout a mile above this place.
It'll be a little soggy but just keep slogging.
We'll soon be on dry ground."
We were -- waist deep in the Big Muddy
■And the big fool said to push on.
The Sergeant said, "Sir, with all this equipment
No man will be able to swim."
"Sergeant, don't be a Nervous Nellie,"
The Captain said to him.
"All we need is a little determination;
Men, follow me, I'll lead on."
We were -- neck deep in the Big Muddy
■And the big fool said to push on.
All at once, the moon clouded over,
We heard a gurgling cry.
A few seconds later, the captain's helmet
Was all that floated by.
The Sergeant said, "Turn around men!
I'm in charge from now on."
And we just made it out of the Big Muddy
■With the captain dead and gone.
We stripped and dived and found his body
Stuck in the old quicksand.
I guess he didn't know that the water was deeper
Than the place he'd once before been.
Another stream had joined the Big Muddy
'Bout a half mile from where we'd gone.
We were lucky to escape from the Big Muddy
■When the big fool said to push on.
Well, I'm not going to point any moral;
I'll leave that for yourself
Maybe you're still walking, you're still talking
You'd like to keep your health.
But every time I read the papers
That old feeling comes on;
We're -- waist deep in the Big Muddy
■And the big fool says to push on.
Waist deep in the Big Muddy
And the big fool says to push on.
Waist deep in the Big Muddy
And the big fool says to push on.
Waist deep! Neck deep! Soon even a
Tall man'll be over his head, we're
Waist deep in the Big Muddy!
■And the big fool says to push on!
