Father To Son

Queen

A word in your ear
From father to son
Hear the word that I say
I fought with you
Fought on your side
Long before you were born

Joyful the sound
The word goes around
From father to son
To son

And the voice is so clear
Time after time it keeps calling you
Calling you on
Don't destroy what you see
Your country to be
Just keep building on the ground
That's been won

Kings will be crowned
And the word goes around
From father to son
To son

Won't you hear us sing
Our family song?
Oh, yeah
Now we hand it on (oh)

But I've heard it all before
Take this letter that I give you
Take it, sonny, hold it high
You won't understand a word that's in it
But you'll write it all again before you die
Yeah, yeah, yeah

A word in your ear
From father to son
Funny, you don't hear a single word I say
But my letter to you will stay by your side through the years
Till the loneliness is gone

(Sing, if you will)
But the air you breathe, I live to give you
Father to son
Father to son

Joyful the sound
The word goes around
From father to son
To son

Kings will be crowned
The word goes around
From father to son
To son

Joyful the sound
The word goes around
From father to son
To son

Kings will be crowned
The word goes around
From father to son
To son

Joyful the sound
The word goes around
From father to son
To son

Kings will be crowned
The word goes around
From father to son
To son
