The Lyrics

One of my all-time favorite toys! Next up may be G.I. Joe Modular Android Space Soldiers (MASS)!
G.I. Joe,
From the '60s,
12" action figures fought Japs and Nazis*
Life- like hair switch,
Had a new grip- Kung Fu!
Even some with eyes that moved!!!

Camouflage new & improved!

G.I. Joe,
Then the '80s,
3.75" were Cobra fighting
Anniversary touch,
Back to 12" a good move,
Comic strip Private Breger led to you**!

First "action figure", so cool, so cool!
* first enemy 12" were Japanese soldier and SS soldier
** G.I. Joe was based on the 1940 comic strip Private Breger. Britain's licensed equivalent was Action Man.
