One More Parade

Hup, two, three, four, marching down the street

Rollin' of the drums and the tramping of the feet

General salutes and the mothers wave and weep

Here comes the big parade

Don't be afraid, prices paid

One more parade

 

So young, so strong, so ready for the war

So willing to go and die upon a foreign shore

All march together, everybody looks the same

So there is no one you can blame

Don't be ashamed, light the flame

One more parade

 

Listen for the sound and listen for the noise

Listen for the thunder of the marching boys

A few years ago their guns were only toys

Here comes the big parade

Don't be afraid, prices paid

One more parade

 

So young, so strong, so ready for the war

So willing to go and die upon a foreign shore

All march together, everybody looks the same

So there is no one you can blame

Don't be ashamed, light the flame

One more parade

 

Medals on their coats and guns in their hands

Trained to kill as they're trained to stand

Ten thousand ears need only one command

Here comes the big parade

Don't be afraid, prices paid

Don't be ashamed, war's a game

World's in flames, so start the parade
