One Tin Soldier lyrics

Song Details
Artist(s)Me First And The Gimme Gimmes
Album(s)Have A Ball

Listen children to a story that was written long ago
About a kingdom on a mountain and the valley folk below
On the mountain was a treasure buried deep beneath a stone
And the valley people swore they'd have it for their very own

So go ahead and hate your neighbor, go ahead and cheat a friend
Do it in the name of heaven, you'll be justified in the end
There won't be any trumpets blowing come the judgement day
On the bloody morning after one, one tin soldier rides away

So the people from the valley sent a message up the hill
Asking for the buried treasure, tons of gold for which they'd kill
Came an answer from the kingdom, "With our brothers we will share
all the secrets of our mountain, all the riches buried there"

Now the valley cried with anger "Mount your horses, draw your swords"
And they killed the mountain people so they won their just reward
As they stood beside the treasure on the mountain dark and red
Turned the stone and looked beneath it, "Peace on Earth" was all it said

So go ahead and hate your neighbor, go ahead and cheat a friend
Do it in the name of heaven, you'll be justified in the end
There won't be any trumpets blowing come the judgement day
On the bloody morning after one, one tin soldier rides away
