SON OF THE FATHER

Gone away to fight the war
Gone just like his daddy-o!
Gone away to fight the way
It's such a terrible shame-o!

The man who owns the bookstore
Has gone to fight the war
His father went before him
But this doesn't stop him
And he never stands for his rights
He's been told to, so he'll go and fight
He may lose his life but he won't think that

The man who owns the bookstore
Don't know what he's in for
Thinks that he's a coward... but he tries...
And who's to wonder why ?
Yes who's to wonder why ?

Gone away to fight the war
Gone just like his daddy-o!
Gone away to fight the way
It's such a terrible shame-o!

The man who is a human
Ruled by another human
To kill another human...if he can survive then!
But who's to wonder why ?
Yes who's to wonder why ?
