lyrics

A thousand years they spent a-sailing on the tarnished ocean,
A thousand tears they shed in vain for their great founders' notion
Had no remorse for some dark horse whose success was not proven,
Best trust those that he on high in all his wisdom's chosen.

Me well I am standing by, wondering just what it is,
Just what it is they did to deserve all of this,
All of this.

He was her first-born and her last, she had high hopes for Joseph,
But as they moved from town to town she could not help but notice
That for all their pride her men were chained to some never-changing motif,
When Joseph was a-sent to jail not one could offer solace.

Me well I am standing by, wondering just what it is,
Just what it is they did to deserve all of this,
All of this.

They come in throngs to meet him saying money's getting tight.
I've never seen my son before, for at war I lost my sight.
Well talk is cheap I'd leave behind the bark and take the bite.
Meanwhile some man shakes their hand, says he understands their plight.

Me well I am standing by, wondering just what it is,
Just what it is they did to deserve all of this,
All of this.
Well I am standing by, wondering just what it is,
Just what it is they did to deserve all of this,
All of this.
