lyrics

toy soldiers

ring around the sun

push and a shove

all because of you

barracuda do

all for the love

just another lesson

song about lovin you

 

help me with this rock

a man & his guitar

 

 

 

 

toy soldiers       by lenny laks

toy soldiers never die
toy soldiers never die
they fight in a make believe war
and if you should lose them
you buy some more
toy soldiers at the store

toy soldiers painted green
some barely seventeen
they donít have families to feed
they donít have loved ones who need them home

up in the white house the president wakes
from a dream that he had last night
he wipes the sweat off his brow
and reaches across for the hand of his wife
he salutes the soldier they call the unknown
and he shoots him a cowboy grin
but the soldier says mr. president
how come you kill me again and again and again

oh baby donít you cry
toy soldiers never die
 oh baby donít you cry
toy soldiers never die
oh baby donít you cry
toy soldiers never die

toy soldiers bold and brave
stand silent at the grave
they pray to their god up above
to send them some peace and somebody to love

oh baby donít you cry
toy soldiers never die
 

oh baby donít you cry
toy soldiers never die


ring around the sun      by lenny laks


i used to live my life in dreams of pleasure
trying to regain the days that i lost
i chased the ghost of yesterdaysí treasure
but i failed to see today is what it cost

and thereís no trace of yesterday
ring around the sun
no trace of tomorrow
today my life has just begun
 thereís no trace of yesterday
ring around the sun
no trace of tomorrow
today my life has just begun
 
the days that passed me by were days of sorrow
i grew lonesome with just a memory
but you held me close and taught me how the song goes
now come on sing the song along with me

and thereís no trace of yesterday
ring around the sun
no trace of tomorrow
today my life has just begun

ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah aaah ah
ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah aaah ah
ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah aaah ah
ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah aaah ah

even if you had a million dollars
you could never buy the time to even tie your shoes
but each day you live your life she growing smaller
and a lifetime of daydreams is a lifetime abused

and thereís no trace of yesterday
ring around the sun
no trace of tomorrow
today my life has just begun



push and a shove     by lenny laks & lenny capizzi

i canít seem to get started
i feel so all alone
love has left me broken hearted
and i canít find my way on my own

i need your sweet inspiration
i need your helping hand
a little love conversation
your just a woman and iím just a man
i know that we can make it baby...yes we can

just a push and a shove
in the right direction
is all i ever needed
to keep my mind following my heart
just a push and a shove
in the right direction
is all i ever wanted
then all my troubles are over
before they begun

now you know where iíve been comin from
i got nothing more to say
i wanna know what youíve been runnin from
oh, sweet baby, donít run away
 oh, sweet baby, donít you run away
