Smile More It's Worth It

Standing tall is the spectral soldier

Lifting the spirits of the other men

And the good die young

He answers all the youths questions

The youth begins to admire him

But the good die young

He is wounded in the first battle

Slowly he dies and leaves the youth petrified

So once again the good die young.
