Zor and Zam Lyrics

Artist: Monkees
Album: The Birds, the Bees & the Monkees

By Bill Chadwick and John Chadwick

The king of Zor, he called for war
And the king of Zam, he answered.
They fashioned their weapons one upon one
Ton upon ton, they called for war at the rise of the sun.

Out went the call to one and to all
That echoed and rolled like the thunder.
Trumpets and drums, roar upon roar
More upon more.
Rolling the call of "Come now to war."

Throughout the night they fashioned their might
With right on the side of the mighty.
They puzzled their minds plan upon plan
Man upon man
And at dying of dawn the great war began.

They met on the battlefield banner in hand.
They looked out across the vacant land.
And they counted the missing, one upon one,
None upon none.
The war it was over before it begun.

Two little kings playing a game.
They gave a war and nobody came.
And nobody came.
And nobody came.
And nobody came.
And nobody came.
[repeat and fade]

I love this song, it makes you think of what is happening right now in iran and all over the world.

The first time I heard this song it gave me chills, it sounded so true. I was only 14 at the time and sure it could never happen in mondern times.

Later in life when I was 19 and out working I read the arms of Krupp and knew it was true.

Krupp was the infamous Arms manufacturer in Germany.
