General Joy I know, I know
You'll take me there
(Where your boys were left behind)

General Joy it seems you need
A soldier girl
(Now they have liberty gagged)

By boat, by tram, by motorbus
Could it be the fates are protecting us
From the hawks that have stolen the bird from the sky

And I know you will always love sorrow
Is that why you gave her dress to happiness?
'Cause it matches her eyes when she cries
(Matches her eyes)

General Joy it seems, you don't love your bride
(That doesn't mean you're bad guy)
Generally you're friends
But she is not the love of your life

To dye, to perm, to change your hair or your wife
The possibilities are there
And it's time for you to decide

And I know you will always love sorrow
Is that why you gave her dress to happiness?
'Cause it matches her eyes when she cries
(Matches her eyes)

General Joy I know, I know you'll take me there
(But you can strive from within)
General Joy it seems you need a soldier girl
(And a willing coalition)

By boat, by tram, by motorbus
Could it be the hawks are protecting us
From the man who have now a assumed their name

And I know you will always love sorrow
Is that why you gave her dress to happiness?
'Cause it matches her eyes when she cries
(Matches her eyes)
'Cause it matches her eyes when she cries
(Matches her eyes)
