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 try
They said it all would turn out right
But they lied
Yes they lied

Too old to die young
Too big to cry
Too old to die young
To say goodbye
