about

We only *suspect* he didn't like his first name...

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)
