Don't Wake The Lion by Magnum  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Don't Wake The Lion Don't Wake the Lion By Magnum.
------------------------------
It was the day that war broke out
Everyone seemed exited
While young men boasted
And talked of great times
Dark clouds gathered
on the Maginot line
Sisters and fathers
Brothers and sons
All said goodbye
It seemes so much fun
We'll be finished by Christmas
Back home by the fire
Perish the distance
The bombs and the wire
Don't wake the lion
There's a firework show tonight
Eveyone's been invited
There's mud on faces
With frightened white eyes
And some won't make it
Throught the thunderous noise
Powerfull and angry
Answer the guns
All through the night
Relief never comes
It's criminal deception
Sets man against man
Indicting reflection
A devious plan
Don't wake the lion
Here what there saying
Come the freeze
You'd better hold on tight
And while your praying
On your knees
Prepare to stand and fight
Someone keeps saying
It's written in a book
So keep yourself in line
But you're betraying
With every nervous look
That now it's killing time
And from the morning to the night
We tried
They said it all would turn out right
They lied
Too old to die young
Too big to cry
Too old to die young
To say goodbye
Above the raging evening sky
Will never be the same
While necks are straining
Those hidden eyes
Shoot out another flame
And from the morning to the night
We tried
They said it all would turn out right
They lied
Too old to die young
Too big to cry
Too old to die young
To say goodbye
While angels sleep tonight
Some of us will be hoping
That someone understands
Who started this fight ?
Thrown down on foreign shoores
So far out of sight
Don't wake the lion
It was the day that war broke out
Everyone seemed exited
While young men boasted
And talked of great times
Dark clouds gathered
It was a change for all times
Sisters and fathers
Brothers and sons
All said goodbye
It seemes so much fun
We'll be finished by Christmas
Back home by the fire
Perish the distance
The bombs and the wire
Don't wake the lion
