  • It's all the same, and then suddenly
    You see the frame, but turn away
    Faces in time, that's when I was your hero

    Wrap my soul in cellophane
    Drown my secrets in the rain
    Johnny comes marchin' home again
    Hey tin soldier, the war ain't over
    Bang bang bang beat the drums of war
    Don't know the name don't know the tin soldier

    Times up, comin' down
    Silver stars watch 'em tumbling down
    We all fall down

    Cold war runnin' through my veins
    Don't know the name don't know the face of
    The tin soldier
    Yeah! Yeah! yeah!

    Come hide inside, come in under
    Do you hear the guns, do you hear the drums

    Wrap my soul in cellophane
    Purple heart hangin' on a chain
    Only the battleground has changed
    Hey tin soldier, the war ain't over
    Johnny comes marchin' home again
    Don't know the name don't know the face of
