Ellie, Ellie, ring your bell,
bring here all the boys,
Summon back the one's who died,
from where they were deployed.

Bandage up their arms and legs,
Take away their fears,
Erase the flashbacks in their minds,
that always re-appear.

Tell them it was just a dream,
The bloody fields are dry,
Pretend you never heard of war,
in case they wonder why.

Don't forget the oceans blue,
there you'll find our men,
The ones who flew or sailed the ships,
that never rose again.

When at last, they've all come home,
and no more tears are shed,
Ellie, they'll be no more taps,
ring your bell instead.
