"Listen children to a story that was written long ago/ 'bout a kingdom on a mountain and the valley folk below./ On the mountain was a treasure buried deep beneath a stone,/ and the valley people swore they'd have it for their very own./ Go ahead and hate your neighbor, go ahead and cheat a friend./ Do it in the name of heaven, justify it in the end./ There won't be any trumpets blowin', come the judgment day,/ on the bloody morning after one tin soldier rides away./ So the people of the valley sent a message up the hill/ asking for the buried treasure, tons of gold for which they'd kill./ Came an answer from the kingdom: 'With our brothers we will share/ all the secrets of our mountain, all the riches buried there.'/ Now the valley cried with anger; mount your horses, draw your sword,/ and they killed the mountain people, so they won their just reward./ Now they stood beside the treasure on the mountain, dark and red,/ turned the stone and looked beneath it. 'Peace on earth' was all it said."
