Tin Soldiers Lyrics 

One fat Englishman on a mule

Feeling so pompous, looking such a fool

He’ll ride that-poor-mule till it drops

Showing he’s master, don’t matter the cost

 

Tin soldiers all dressed in red

Tin soldiers all dressed in red

Melting in the sun, just like moulton lead

In the sun like moulton lead

 

He was born-to-lead, so they said

Empire’s built on sand, on backs of the dead

They say charity starts at home

Nick-knack-paddy-whack

Give the dog a bone

 

Tin soldiers all dressed in red

Tin soldiers all dressed in red

Melting in the sun, just like moulton lead

In the sun like moulton lead

 

So much sacrifice for a crown

Written in the past

Pages are all brown

The sun never sets come what may

The sun never sets so they say

 

Georgie Porgie please

Won’t you come out to play

Who’s the King of the Castle

Who’s the dirty rascal

Who’s the dirty rascal

Who’s the King of the Castle

 

Tin soldiers all dressed in red

Tin soldiers all dressed in red

Melting in the sun, just like moulton lead

In the sun like moulton lead

 

Tin soldiers, Tin soldiers, Tin soldiers

Tin soldiers, Tin soldiers, Tin soldiers
