Stephen Smith – The Bell

Oh where are you going?’ said the man at his desk
‘I’m going to a new world’, said the child and he stood
And he stood, and he stood, and t’were well that he stood
‘I’m going to a new world’, said the child and he stood

Oh I’m sounding drums of war’, said the man at his desk
‘Oh, I will not fight your war’, said the child and he stood
And he stood, and he stood, and t’were well that he stood
‘I will not fight your war’, said the child and he stood

Oh, but don’t you love your country?’ said the man at his desk
‘Yes, I do, but you don’t’, said the child and he stood
And he stood, and he stood, and t’were well that he stood
‘I do but you don’t’, said the child and he stood

Oh, but do you know the truth?’ said the man at his desk
‘Yes, you lie and call it truth’, said the child and he stood
And he stood, and he stood, and t’were well that he stood
‘You lie and call it truth’, said the child and he stood

Oh, you must be scared to die’, said the man at his desk
‘No, I’m prepared and you’re scared’, said the child and he stood
And he stood, and he stood, and t’were well that he stood
‘I’m prepared and you’re scared’, said the child and he stood

Oh, I think I hear a bell’, said the man at his desk
‘Yes, it’s ringing you to hell’, said the child and he stood
And he stood, and he stood, and t’were well that he stood
‘Yes, it’s ringing you to hell’, said the child and he stood.
