Lyrics

We love them
We mourn for them
Unlucky boys of red

I wish I'd gone down
Gone down with them
To where mother nature makes their bed

We miss them
Everynight we kiss them
Their faces fixed in our heads

I wish I'd gone down
Gone down with them
To where mother nature makes their bed

They can't hurt you
Their style will never desert you
Because they're all safely dead

I wish I'd gone down
Gone down with them
To where mother nature makes their bed
