    Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing?
    Where have all the flowers gone, long time ago?
    Where have all the flowers gone?
    Gone to young girls, every one!
    When will they ever learn, when will they ever learn?
    Where have all the young girls gone, long time passing?
    Where have all the young girls gone, long time ago?
    Where have all the young girls gone?
    Gone to young men, every one!
    When will they ever learn, when will they ever learn?
    Where have all the young men gone, long time passing?
    Where have all the young men gone, long time ago?
    Where have all the young men gone?
    Gone to soldiers, every one!
    When will they ever learn, when will they ever learn?
    And where have all the soldiers gone, long time passing?
    Where have all the soldiers gone, a long time ago?
    Where have all the soldiers gone?
    Gone to graveyards, every one!
    When will they ever learn, when will they ever learn?
    And where have all the graveyards gone, long time passing?
    Where have all the graveyards gone, long time ago?
    Where have all the graveyards gone?
    Gone to flowers, every one!
    When will they ever learn, oh when will they ever learn?

    After review i think that the Tattooed Millionaire is more likely George Lucas than Steve Harris. Either that, or Bruce Dickinson is poking fun at himself. And songs with a girl's name in it is a better list. And now I'm Breaking the Chains
