One Tin Soldier

Listen children to a story
That was written long ago
‘Bout 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 the people of 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

Go ahead and hate your neighbor
Go ahead and cheat a friend
Do it in the name of Heaven
You can justify it in the end
There won’t be any trumpets blowin’
Come the Judgment Day
On the bloody morning after-her-her
One tin soldier rides away

Now the valley cried in anger
“Mount your horses, draw your sword”
And they killed the mountain people
So they won their just reward
Now they stood beside the treasure
On the mountain dark and red
Turn the stone and looked beneath it
“Peace on Earth” was all it said

Soothing smiles of mercy. There's definetly some sad taste behind this. I like it
