Listen children to a story that was written long ago.
Û÷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.
Chorus: 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 judgement day. On the bloody morning after. One Tin soldier rides away.
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 and answer from the kingdom ÛÏ With our brothers we will share. All the secrets of our mountain, all the riches buried there.Û
Now the valley cried with anger mount your horses, draw your sword. And they killed the mountain people so they won there just reward.
Now they stood beside the treasure on the mountain, dark and red. Turned the stone and looked beneath it ÛÏPeace On EarthÛ was all it said.
