Hank Thompson – Ole Napoleon lyrics

Ole Napoleon Bonaparte he was a mighty man
With his powerful army he conquered all the land he conquered all the land
Everybody praised him the battles he could win
They all talked about him ole Napoleon ole Napoleon
He said if I must rule the world I think I need a queen
He found the girl he wanted her name was Josephine her name was Josephine
He fell in love with Josephine and asked her next of kin
If she would like to be the wife of ole Napoleon of ole Napoleon
[ fiddle - guitar ]
Callin' all his Generals and he said it seems to me
All this mighty power's gonna be the death for me gonna be the death for me
He marched out in the battle and in a day or two
The empire was defeated he met his Waterloo he met his Waterloo
They put him on an island to stay there till he died
And poor ole Napoleon sat right down and cried sat right down and cried
Now if you think you're mighty and your finals you will win
You may have your Waterloo like ole Napoleon like ole Napoleon
