    Lyrics

    The lamp that lights the way
    Is a light from yesterday.
    The drum which leads the way
    Is a sound from yesterday.

    The road is filled with shadows
    Of a million, living leaves.
    Darkness all around us
    And not a friend in sight.

    We sang a song together
    To help us through the night.
    The song was sung with spirit
    But soft, and like a choir.

    And as the others sang along,
    Our voices lifted higher.
    We sang until we reached the bridge
    We crossed, then saw the wire.

    But by the time we stopped the song,
    The enemy had opened fire.

    Now, we ain't gonna sing that song no more
    Ain't gonna sing that song no more.
    Just don't pay to sing no more
    Especially when you're in a war. A war.

    Now, this time through,
    We want everybody to listen to the punchline
    All right. All right. All right! All right!

    The song was sung with spirit
    But soft and like a choir.
    But by the time we stopped the song,
    The enemy had opened fire.

    Now, we ain't gonna sing that song no more.
    Ain't gonna sing that song no more.
    Just don't pay to sing no more.
    Especially when you're in a war.
