Take Your Children to the Hill

Alun Parry
Lingua: Inglese



Take your children to the hill
On a night that's warm and still
Bring a picnic if you will
Take your children to the hill

Pack the car and off we drive
It isn't far and we're there in five
All the neighbours are there as well
Waiting for the show

Sandwiches and a bottle of wine
And a box of home-made cakes
And handkerchiefs for the little one
Well, you know the mess she makes

Take your children to the hill
On a night that's warm and still
Bring a picnic if you will
Take your children to the hill

The music plays it's my favourite style
I see my friend and we talk for a while
Her baby boy he is walking now
I say, he's really coming on

I laugh at all of the food that I've made
She says that it'll keep
And the little one, her head's upon my chest
She's already fast asleep.

Take your children to the hill
On a night that's warm and still
Bring a picnic if you will
Take your children to the hill

And at last, they start the show
Bombs were dropping on the town below
I swear I saw their school burn down
We had such a brilliant view

We stood and cheered as their town turned to fire
We chanted Death to Palestine
And we smiled when the children joined in too
Oh, we had the best of times…

Take your children to the hill
On a night that's warm and still
a picnic if you will
Take your children to the hill,
Take your children to the hill.
