Whatever happened to Duncan?
He was a good boy they say
the girls all wanted him to dance with
the boys to play, to play!
When the policeman came knocking
she didn't know what to say
except his shoes and socks were all gone
seems they ran away

Oh, you fool, you fools!
Don't give in to fate
if this is all we've got to fight for -
rage, my darling, rage!
Duncan good for you
sad, but on your way
well the army never turned his crank
but love sure made him brave

Sweeter infatuation
oh, you'd be hard pressed to find
he loved so deeply and madly
he nearly lost his mind

Behold the Mayor's daughter
she was a treat for the eye
but it's the only thing to kill for
made him want to die

Oh, you fool, you fools!
don't give into fate
if this is all we've got to fight for -
rage, my darling, rage!
Duncan good for you
sad, but on your way
well the army never turned his crank
but love sure made him brave

This, his Holy war,
we must fight and fight again
a thousand times for the sake of love
but never once in vain

    General Comment"If this is all we've got to fight for - rage, my darling, rage!" Words to live by for sure. Fight for whatever is important to you, who cares about fate or the rest of the world. Sarah is great!
