Lyrics
You won't see any big parade
There won't be any bugle played
Sad to say no war today
'Cause the general's fast asleep

Soldiers bold in a mighty row
They've been told they're to fight the foe
Sad to say no war today
'Cause the general's fast asleep

The colonel's mad, and the major blue
The captain's sad and the sergeant too
Guess this war will have to keep
It's enough to make an army weep

Look oh look at his curly head
Time to take him away to bed
Sad to say no war today
'Cause the general's fast asleep

It seems an awful shame
That his victory won't go down to fame
Sandman's here to dim the light
Little general, good night
