Treasure on the Mountain - Bon Jovi

Listen Children to a story that was written long ago
about a people on the mountain and the vally folk below
on the mountain was a treasure burried deep beneeth the ston
and the vally people swore they'd have it for their very own

Go ahead and hate your neighbor
go ahead and cheat a friend
do it in the name of heaven
you can justify it in the end
there wont be any trumpets blowing come the judgment day
on the bloody battle morning
on tin soldier rides away

so the people of the vally sent a message up the hill
asking for the burried treasure, tons of gold for which they'd kill
came an answer from the mountain 'with our brothers we will share
all the secrets of our mountain all the riches burried there'

now the vally cried with anger 'mount your horses, draw your swords'
so they killed the mountain people, so they won their just reward
as they stood beside the treasure on the mountain, dark and red
lift the stone and look beneeth it, 'PEACE ON EARTH' was all it said
