Singalong: Napoleon by Sarah Slean

Just throwing this song out for this week, as another not-so-subtle warning to all of us about, oh, I don't know, tyrants. Not that it's topical or anything.


NAPOLEON
by Sarah Slean

Under great golden statues
There is an ancient grave
The emperor's fort is restless
There's something he wants to say

To the princes of lazy science
To the merchants of holy war
He had but one instruction
Be careful with metaphor

So every nation be warned
Soon as the last one is mourned
Another tyrant is born

To the pirates that came to follow
Itching to wrench on the reins of force
Napoleon sent a message
Don't get high on your only horse

So every nation be warned
Soon as the last one is mourned
Another tyrant is born

Mother, I fear of madness
'Cause I heard him call my name
I followed his ghostly finger
And I saw a world in flames
