One by one until there where none
Two by two to their lovers they flew
Two by two into the foggy dew.
Three by three they danced on the sea
Four by four they danced on the shore
Five by five they tried to survive
Six by six they were playing with tricks.
How many paths did he try and fail
How many of their brothers and sisters linger in jail
How much poison did their inhale
How many black cats crossed their trail.
Seven by seven they head for heaven
Eight by eight their got to the gate
Nine by nine they drank the wine
Ten by ten they drank it again.
How many tomorrows have they given away
How many compared to yesterday
How many more without any reward
How many more can they afford.
Two by two they step into the ark
Two by two they step in the dark
Three by three they’re turning the key
Four by four they turn it some more.
One by one they followed the sun
Two by two to another rendezvous
Three by three don’t tread on me
Four by four they’re loosing the war.
Five by five can’t stay alive……
