They followed the Piper to la-la Land
Together to sink and drown
But as they descended they all held hands
And uttered a lovely sound
They followed the Piper until their death
To the Land of Never More
And as they followed they all lent breath
To a charming and lilting score
The marching was hard but the song was sweet,
"They must know something they thought,
Those musicians to whom we tap our feet,
Who help us get overwrought.
How can it be ghastly, this fate of ours
When the melody rings so true?
Let us set aside the cruel facts
And do as the song bids do."
Thanks for the soundtrack, the lovely lies
Thanks for the chant of war
And Grandpa waves from his bill-lined grave
"Thanks suckas, that was some score!"
