Men at arms shout Who goes there?
We have journeyed far from here
Armed with Bibles, make us swear

Candy and Cathy
Hope you both are well
Please come see me
In the citadel

Flags are flying dollar bills
From the heights of concrete hills
You can see the pinnacles

Candy and Cathy
Hope you both are well
Please come see me
In the citadel

In the streets of many walls
Here the peasants come and crawl
You can hear their numbers called

Candy and Cathy
Hope you both are well
Please come see me
In the citadel

Screaming people fly so fast
In their shining metal cars
Through the woods of steel and glass

Candy and Cathy
Hope you both are well
Please come see me
In the citadel

Oh well
