All the Fine Young Men

Eric Bogle
Lingua: Inglese



They told all the fine young men
"When this war is over
There will be peace
and the peace will last forever".
In Flanders Field, at Lone Pine and Bersheeba
For king and country, for honour and duty
The young men fought and cursed and wept and died

They told all the fine young men
"When this war is over
There will be peace
and the peace will last forever".
At Tobruk and Alamein, at Bhuna and Kokoda
In a world mad with war, like their fathers before
The young men fought and cursed and wept and died

For many of those fine young men
all the wars are over
They have found peace,
it's the peace that lasts forever
When the call comes again they will not answer
They're just forgotten bones lying far from their homes
As forgotten as the cause for which they died

Ah young men, can you see now why they lied?
