The chorus goes like this:

Teach your children* well
Their father’s hell did slowly go by
And feed them on your dreams
The one they picks the one you’ll know by

*Next time around, line goes:
“Teach your parents well…”


The Peace Song of the Day is a project of Duke Augustus and Duchess Susanna, The Duke and Duchess of Peace. The Duke and Duchess recognize that one of the paths to peace is to find soulful and nonviolent entertainment, and to express oneself with art and song.
