Calvary

This song is by Marc Almond.

One night as I lay sleeping,
I heard children singing a song.
When I woke up, I was weeping.
And I knew that something was wrong.
Who are all of those children anyway?
And what do they want with me?
What's that song they're singing?
Something about Calvary.

Calvary!
Up on Calvary!
Calvary!
Up on Calvary!

Jesus said, "Don't weep for me.
No, don't weep for me.
Weep for your children instead.
Who are all of those children anyway?
Oughta be home in bed."

Calvary!
Up on Calvary!
Calvary!
Up on Calvary!


What happened to your mama?
Where has your daddy gone?
What happened to your big sister?
Why are you singing that dreadful song?

Calvary!
Up on Calvary!
Calvary!
Up on Calvary!

Take up your cross and follow!
Wake up from your sleep!
Wake up! Wake up in sorrow!
Wake up! Wake up and weep!
Take up your cross and follow!
Won't you follow me?
Wake up! Wake up in sorrow!
Wake up on Calvary!
