Stonewall Jackson – Waterloo Lyrics

 

Waterloo Waterloo where will you meet your Waterloo

Every puppy has his day everybody has to pay everybody has to meet his Waterloo

 

Now ol' Adam was the first in history with an apple he was tempted and deceived

Just for spite the devil made him take a bite

And that's where ol' Adam met his Waterloo

Waterloo Waterloo...

 

Little General Napoleon of France tried to conquer the world but lost his pants

Met defeat known as Bonaparte's reterat and that's where Napoleon met his Waterloo

Waterloo Waterloo...

 

Now a feller who's darling proved untrue took her life but he lost his too

Now he swings where the little birdie sings

And that's where Tom Dooley met his Waterloo

Waterloo Waterloo...
