Take this to the emperor
Tell him his dirty army is defeated
Tell him I'm the last of soldiers that stands today
And tell him, he don't have to fear me
But I hold his wife and daughter in a basement
They don't need no light or food from hands bloody from your tyranny

And tell my ma I'm gonna be alright
And tell my pa I'm gonna be alright
Tell my love we're gonna have a lot of fun
Just sing it
La la la...

The day when he sees me
He's gonna think that I'm to young for revolution
But I've got my future fighting his history
And tell him I'm sorry
But we've had enough of his ego
There's gonna be blood
Old blood filling the streets of the night

And tell my son I'm gonna be alright
And tell his mom I'm gonna be alright
Tell my love we're gonna have a lot of fun
Just sing it
La la la...

And tell my ma I'm gonna be alright
And tell my pa I'm gonna be alright
Tell my love we're gonna have a lot of fun
Just sing it
La la la...

And tell the emperor I'm gone!
And tell the king I'm gone!
Tell my ma I'm gone,
Just sing it
La la la...

    General CommentMando Diao are very popular in Japan, maybe its history inspired them to write this song. It seems to fit; the Japanese soldiers are said to be very loyal and to rise against the emperor would surely be a revolution. It's my favourite song from Never seen the light of day
