As the Sun (the Emperor Is Naked Today-O!)

Pete Seeger
Lingua: Inglese



As the sun
Rose on the rim of eastern sky
And this one
World that we love was trying to die
We said stand!
And sing out for a great hooray-o!

Your child may be the one to exclaim
The emperor is naked today-o!
Four winds that blow
Four thousand tongues, with the word: survive
Four billion souls
Striving today to stay alive
We say stand!
And sing out for a great hooray-o!

Why don’t we be the ones to exclaim
The emperor is naked today-o!
Men – have failed
Power has failed, with papered gold.
Shalom – salaam
Will yet be a word where slaves were sold
We say stand!
And sing out for a great hooray-o!
We yet may find the way to exclaim
The emperor is naked today-o!
