Little Island (Elton John)

Written by Randy Newman From the album Faust In two long wars, my country bled To save the world for everyone As through the years, the fight we've led Too long, we stood alone, too long alone And when at last, the battle won We asked for no reward An empire gone Two generations turned to blood and dust Only the best were lost Only the best And now the years have passed The times have changed The foe is risen up He stands astride the world His dreams of conquest all fulfilled Little island, little island Glory lost in the mists of time They will pay for what was done To those of us who died so young They will pay for what was done Little island, little island
