Decades of sorrow war and grief 
And to many things going wrong 
The land is wasted and time is running short for their power is

For the son of a carpenter 
Alone again 

He has nothing but to be left alone 
His hands and work should will 
Be carried on 
From a third generation son to a 

Future grandchild 
The work of a carpenters 
Makes the whole world smile 
And to many thing going wrong 

The land is wasted and time 
Is running short for the work 
Of a carpenters will carry on, carry on
