Lyrics


Tora! Tora! Tora

They were raining from the sky

Exploding in my heart

Is this a love in disguise

Or just a form of modern art


From the skies you could almost hear them cry

Tora! Tora! Tora!

In the town they were going down

Tora! Tora! Tora!


I had a nightmare only yesterday

You played a skeleton

You took my love then died that day

I played an American


From the skies you can almost hear them cry

Tora! Tora! Tora!

In the town they were going down

Tora! Tora! Tora!


I played an American
