Em                    A 
Once upon a time in a faraway land 
        Em                          A  
Lived a villain called Flash he was such a wicked man 
   Em                             A
He terrorized the people he broke arms and crushed hands 
   Em                       A
He ruled with a fist and he purchased all the land 

        Em            D          A            Em
Then he plowed up the fields and cut down the trees
             D    A 
For property speculation 
       Em     D         A      Em
And he did it all for a pot of gold 
            D         A
And for his own preservation 

The people were scared they didn't know where to turn 
They couldn't see any salvation 
From the hoods and the spivs and the crooked politicians 
Who were cheating and lying to the nation 

Save the fields and the trees 
And give them back to the nation 
Bring the government down a new leader must be found 
For the sake of preservation 

He said he did it to help us all 
And did it for the good of the nation 
But he did it for a pot of gold ?And for his own preservation 

Preservation,  preservation .... 

When money is evil And power is corrupt 
The devil moves in and takes over 
Mr. Flash broke his word 
And now he's got to pay 
For his crimes and his lies and his evil ways 

And it's gonna get rough 
And it's gonna get rough 
It's a crime and a sin that no one can win 
In a story of self preservation
