The Lyrics

Hiroo Onada's story of refusing to surrender in the Philippines from 1945-1974!!!
Not breakin' down
He was up to task
Commando fought until the last
The war ended in Aug '45
But Onada chose to stay alive

He refused to surrender, retreat
Hid in the hills and stole fresh meat
Leaflets dropped were all lies
He would still fight the Allies

[Chorus 2x:]
He never gave up his mission
No, oh-no

Akatsu in '50 had given-in
Shimada killed by fishermen
Hide-eat, hide-eat, hide-eat

Slow movin' on
Stayed strong


In '54 Shimada killed by police (another death repeat)
Onada fought on, hid amonst the trees (for security)
Ordered not to self-kill
Kept Arisaka and sword (strong willed)

Norio Suzuki got him to the other side (the other side)
The whole world was mystified (mystified)
One demand to be made
Commanding Officer to say (Terms of Surrender laid)


[Chorus 2x]

By '74 world had changed and he felt betrayed
But was relieved of duty 'cause
He served his time and it had been more than enough (in conditions rough)
Pardoned by Marcos as such!

Still, the memories...

[Chorus 2x]

(Why had he held out so long???)

Slow movin' on
It's all gone

Noble, dedicated, and yet so wrong (civilians died)
Second LT. Hiroo Onada died on January 16, 2014. After surrender, he had moved to Brazil, married, and worked with Cattle. Was paid back pay by Japan but donated it to the Yasukuni Shrine. Supported a movement to restore Japan back to Imperial greatness. Could not understand the postwar younger generation and lack of honor. Only Teruo Nakamura held out for longer surrendering in Indonesia on December 18, 1974.

Note: Kozuka killed in 1972 in police shoot-out, leaving Onada isolated. Could not work him into the lyrics due to space restriction.

Sorry, messed up last comment. Third verse line 1 should have read "In '72 Kozuka killed by police (another death repeat)!

Sorry I missed this when you posted it. I read Onada's book. That man was truly devoted to duty. It was fortunate his sergeant was still living to be able to tell him that the war was over and his mission accomplished. I heard there were two other Japanese soldiers who fought with a communist insurgent army in Malaysia or Burma. They were fully aware the war had ended but volunteered to join the insurgency. Thanks for the update on Onada's life after the jungle.

I have Onada's book as well as a wide range of war biographies. My favorite is "MiG Pilot" by LT. Belenko on his defection with the MiG-25 Foxbat.

Side note on the MiG-25 Foxbat that was followed up by the MiG-31 Foxhound. Since MiG failed to sell the 1.42/1.44 MFI (MiG-39), it has since taken a back seat to Sukhoi family based on the initial Su-27 Flanker leading up to the PAK FA and Bomber PAK DA. MiG has regrouped with a UCAV called Skat (Skate) and the MiG-41 Foxhunter which will be a Mach 4.3 interceptor using new metallurgy and with hypersonic missiles operating off a massive AESA.
