Tin Soldier

Lyrics

Small Faces



I'm a little tin soldier
That wants to jump into your fire
You are a look in your eye
A dream passing by in the sky
I don't understand
All I need is treat me like a man
'Cause I ain't no child
Take me like I am
I got to know that I belong to you
Do anything that you want to do
Sing any so song that you want me to sing to you
I don't need no aggravation
I just got to make you
I just got to make you my occupation
I got to know that I belong to you
Do anything that you want to do
Sing any so song that you want me to sing to you

All I need is your whispered hello
Smiles melting the snow
Nothing heard
You eyes are deeper than time
Say a love that won't rhyme without words
So now I've lost my way
I need help to show me things to say
Give me your love before mine fades away
I got to know that I belong to you
Do anything that you want to do
Sing any so song that you want me to sing to you

Oh no no
I just want some reaction
Someone to give me satisfaction
All I want to do is stick with you ,'cause I love you

One of the best bands ever! Steve Marriotts voice brill. Who is Robert PLant
- shirley, kelso, United Kingdom
P.P Arnold provides vocals on this track.
Anyone wishing to check this out ,go to youtube, and type it into search.
The miming is fairly bad, but the song is a belter.
As mentioned. Badly overlooked band. And one of Britain,s greatest vocalists. Sadly burned to death in his house. Too much over indulgence, and lack of sleep.
Had met up with Pete Frampton that day, planning to work together.
That would have been something special.
- Jeff Lewin, Nottingham,
this is in my opinion an amazing song, however they are a greatly overlooked group.
- Patrick Hamilton, Braintree, England
The metaphor for this song is from the fairy tale of the same name by Hans Christian Andersen. It's a tale of undying love and selfless sacrifice. If you read it http://www.fairytalescollection.com/hans_christian_anderson/The_Brave_Tin_Soldier.htm
you will understand how Steve Marriott could have chosen this heart-rending tale for his love lyric.

Apart from all that sop it's a rip roaring song.
- Guy, Wellington, New Zealand
