Commodore (Joshua James)

Commodore, commodore, commodore Well, save yourself, the cellars cold but dry Commodore, commodore, commodore Well, grab your coat the wind'll blow out your eyes Well, this closet's not cold with the embers in my hair Even papa sleeps tonight Mama said the war will end just as soon as it began But then why do we sit and hide? Commodore, oh why? Commodore, commodore, hide those books Your candles will keep you warm tonight Commodore, commodore, commodore When they knock your place drown the cellar light Well, this closet's not cold with the embers in my hair Even papa sleeps tonight Mama said the war will end just as soon as it began But then why do we sit and hide? Commodore, oh why? It's the blackest of the nights And the moon won't shine it's light And the streets stained red so bright Well, this closet's not cold with the embers in my hair Even papa sleeps tonight Mama said the war will end just as soon as it began But then why do we sit and hide? Mama said the war will the end just as soon as it began Even Papa slept tonight But no not me I sat and stared out the window to the streets And saw men and women die My God, my God, oh why? My God, oh why? My God, oh why? My God, oh why?
