lyrics

VERSE 1
Bonaparte was feeling lonely
Day and night he wore a frown
Fighting battles in which he knew he'd
Be letting all his people down

CHORUS
He can't make everyone happy
It's his lot in life to loose
He didn't even like his first name
Napoleon has got the blues
Napoleon has got the blues

VERSE 2
Missing the smells of his homeland
And the breeze upon his face
He didn't want to be a soldier
Exiled from the human race

CHORUS
He can't make everyone happy
It's his lot in life to loose
He didn't even like his first name
Napoleon has got the blues
Napoleon is...

BRIDGE
Cursing life on Elba
With his useless golden hand
He's got an unnamed complex
AAAHHHH!

CHORUS
He can't make everyone happy
It's his lot in life to loose
He didn't even like his first name
Napoleon has got the blues
Napoleon has got the blues

OUTRO
Napoleon, Napoleon, Napoleon, Napoleon
Napoleon, Napoleon, Napoleon, Napoleon

(La Marseillaise plays)
