Poppies Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Long long ago, in China I'm told
To England was traded some tea
And so sealed the fate in pieces of eight
All England and all of the world

Yeah, poppies

When soon his majesty sent soldiers and thieves
To India searching for gold instead from the ground
Some magic they found
Something far better I'm told

Yeah, poppies
Yeah, poppies

And now this story told from days of our own
When gossamer doggies ran ran
They'd patiently wait with pieces of eight
So everybody could smile one more time

Yeah, poppies
Yeah, poppies

Songwriters
WOZNIAK, JOHN K.
