One More Parade

    Newer Older

    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
