ONE MORE PARADE
(Phil Ochs)

Hup, two, three, four, marching down the street.
Rolling of the drums and the tramping of the feet.
The general salutes while the mothers wave and weep.
Here comes the big parade, don't be afraid,
Price is paid, one more parade.

cho: So young, so strong, so ready for the war,
So willing to go and die on a foreign shore.
All march together, everybody looks the same
So there is no one you can blame, don't be ashamed
Light the flame, one more parade.

Listen for the sound and listen for the noise
Listen for the thunder of the marching boys
A few years ago their guns were only toys
Here comes the big parade, don't be afraid
The price is paid, one more parade.

Medals on their coats and guns in their hands
All trained to kill as they're trained to stand
Ten thousand ears need only one command
Here comes the big parade, don't be afraid
The price is paid, one more parade.

Cold, hard stares on faces so proud
Kisses from the girls and cheers from the crowd
And the widows from the last war crying through their shroud
Here comes the big parade, don't be afraid
The price is paid, don't be ashamed, war's a game
The world in flames- so start the parade.
