Listen children to a story That was written long ago 'Bout a kingdom, on a mountain And the valley folk below On the mountain was a treasure Buried deep beneath a stone And the valley people swore They'd have it for their very own Go ahead and hate your neighbour Go ahead and cheat a friend Do it in the name of Heaven You can justify it in the end There wont be any trumpets blowin' Come the judgement day On the bloody mornin' after One tin soldier rides away So the people of the valley Sent a message up the hill Asking for the buried treasure Tons of gold for which they'd kill Came an answer from the kingdom With our brothers we will share All the secrets of our mountain All the riches buried there Now the valley cried with anger Mount your horses, draw your sword And they killed the mountain people So they won their just reward Now they stood beside the treasure On the mountain dark and red Turn the stone and looked beneath it "Peace on Earth" was all it said Go ahead and hate your neighbour Go ahead and cheat a friend Do it in the name of Heaven You can justify it in the end There wont be any trumpets blowin' Come the judgement day On the bloody mornin' after One tin soldier rides away Go ahead and hate your neighbour Go ahead and cheat a friend Do it in the name of Heaven You can justify it in the end There wont be any trumpets blowin' Come the judgement day On the bloody mornin' after One tin soldier rides away (Contributed by Bette Carl - March 2003) (Updated by Mel Priddle - January 2014)
