DIRE STRAITS lyrics : "The Man's Too Strong"

I'm just and ageing drummer boy
And in the wars I used to play
And I've called the tune

To many a torture session
Now they say I am a war criminal
And I'm fading away

Father please hear my confession

I have legalised robbery

Called it a belief
I have run with the money
And hid like a theif

I have re-written history
With my armies and my crooks
Invented memories

I did burn all the books
And I can still hear his laughter
And I can still hear his song

The man's too big
The man's too strong


Well I have tried to be meek
And I have tried to be mild
But I spat like a woman

And sulked like a child
I have lived behind walls
That have made me alone

Striven for peace
Which I have never known
And I can still hear his laughter

And I can still hear his song
The man's too big
The man's too strong


Well the sun rose on the courtyard
And they all did hear him say

'You always were a Judas
But I got you anyway
You may have got your silver

But I swear upon my life
Your sister gave me diamonds
And I gave them to your wife'

Oh father please help me
For I have done wrong
The man's too big

The man's too strong
