MY BUSINESS SUIT WAS U.S. AIR FORCE BLUE




Photobucket


Everyday you see them in thousands of cities
They're hustling and rushing to many places
Civilians who scurry about in business suits

Each day during their morning rush to get to work
They'd wear brown, black, gray and pinstriped too
But have you ever wondered what job they all did

Most people could never tell just looking at them
Maybe a lawyer or work for a Fortune 500 company
It is really hard to tell where they were rushing

I use to wear a suit once but it was a long time ago
There was a big difference between theirs and mine
I'd worn the exact same colored suit to work everyday

People could easily see that I was someone different
There was this air of confidence which surrounded me
People knew instantly for who I worked and why I did

The color of my suit was blue and I wore it proudly
They could see I'd been to many places in the world
There were colored ribbons that spoke of my own work

I was proud for I'd walked in the company of heroes
That thin line of courageous men who kept us all free
We'd seen the best and worst man could do to others

Yet we stood tall and would respond at a moments notice
To go anywhere and meet any challenge to defend freedom
Because our suits were the color of U.S. Air Force blue
