The A-Side is an abbreviated studio alternative to the concert version of the same song opening the 1979 "Sabotage/Live" album, pitting the ex-Velvet Underground viola player against the insidious threat of Commie infiltration, from "the dirty old Belgian Congo" to ground zero Moscow.

Mercenaries (Ready for War) Lyrics. Mercenaries are usless, disunited, unfaithful They have nothing more to keep them in a battle Other than a meager wage Which is just about enough to make them wanna kill for you But never enough to make them wanna die for ya. I'm just another soldier boy I'm just another soldier boy Looking for work Looking for work Looking for work.
