Song Meaning
Verse 1
A word in your ear, from father to son
Hear the word that I say
I fought with you, fought on your side
Long before you were born
Verse 2
Joyful the sound, the word goes around
From father to son, to son...
And the voice is so clear, time after time it keeps on
Calling you, calling you on
Don't destroy what you see, your country to be
Just keep building on the ground that's been won
Verse 3
Kings will be crowned, and the word goes around
From father to son, to son
Verse 4
Won't you hear us sing
(te de de de de de de de de de de de de de de)
Our family song
(te de de de de de de de de de de de de de de)
Verse 5
Father, father, father, father, ooh yeah, father, father, father, father
(te de de de de de de de de de de de de de de)
Now we hand it on
But I've heard it all before
Verse 6
Take this letter that I give you
Take it sonny, hold it high
You won't understand a word that's in it
But you'll write it out again before you die (yeah yeah)
Verse 7
A word in your ear from father to son
Funny you don't hear a single word I say
But my letter to you will stay by your side
Through the years till the loneliness is gone
Sing if you will - but the air you breathe I live to give you
Verse 8
Father to son, father to, father to, father to son
Verse 9
Joyful the sound, the word goes around
From father to son, to son...
Verse 10
Kings will be crowned, the word goes around
From father to son, to son
Verse 11
Joyful the sound, the word goes around
From father to son, to son...
Verse 12
Kings will be crowned, the word goes around
From father to son, to son
Verse 13
Joyful the sound, the word goes around
From father to son, to son...
Verse 14
Kings will be crowned, the word goes around
From father to son, to son
Verse 15
Joyful the sound, the word goes around
