lirik lagu two little boys – ted egan

Loading...

[intro]
my mum taught us this little song
she remembered hearing it as a 7 year old girl in about 1908
and we’re glad that she remembered every word and every note accurately, because
it seemed to us for many years that no one else in the world knew this song but our family

[verse 1]
two little boys had two little toys
each had a wooden horse
g-yly they’d play, each summer’s day
warriors both, of course
one little chap then had a mishap
broke off his horse’s head
wept for his toy, then cried with joy
when his young comrade said

[chorus]
did you think i would leave you crying
when there’s room on my horse for two?
climb up here jack, we’ll soon be flying
mine can go just as fast with two
when we grow up we’ll both be soldiers
and our horses will not be toys
i wonder if we’ll remember
when we were two little boys

[verse 2]
long years past, war came so fast
bravely they marched away
cannon roared loud, and in the mad crowd
wounded and dying lay
out goes a shout, a horse dashes out
out from the ranks so blue
gallops away, to where joe lay
then came a voice from true

[chorus]
did you think i would leave you dying
when there’s room on my horse for two?
climb up here joe, we’ll soon be flying
back to the ranks so blue
did you say joe i’m all untrammeled
perhaps it’s the battle’s noise
but it may be that i remember
when we were two little boys
