The Ant's Go Marching

I heard a call to war..
There beneath a sky of blue,
Standing upon a lawn of green
They marched towards a house painted White

And the people cheered




We've come to settle score
The donned their flags
Red, white and blue
Each held their gun up high

And the people cheered.

Mine eyes have seen the glory
of the coming of the lord,
He is trampling out the vintage
where the grapes of wrath are stored,
He hath loosed his fateful lightning
of His terrible swift sword,
His truth is marching on


And the people sang

Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on


The ants go marching one by one.
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The ants go marching one by one.
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The ants go marching one by one;
The little one stops to suck his thumb,
And they all go marching down into the ground
To get out of the rain.
Boom, boom, boom, boom!

Down, down down into the ground
6 feet under


When Johnny comes marching home again,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll give him a hearty welcome then
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The men will cheer and the boys will shout
The ladies they will all turn out
And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home.


And suddenly the people wept

Gone were their shouts
Silenced were their jeers
This was the sum of all fears
A bloodbath in the name of freedom

If they gather, in America's name
Do not go
If they call to arms, against the government
Stay your place

Gather your children
Kiss your wives
Love your neighbor
Be gentle as you are wise

What will be..is coming
And was spoken of..is here
Those who understand...listen
For the time is near
