lyrics

always at your service I'll remain
I'm still loyal to the bone
and I will break whoever's in your way
just tell me where to throw the stone

(chorus)
my love for you is deeper than the ocean
endless, unbending and raw
even though you don't need my protection
still I guard you like a dog
like a dog

I believe the people need a leader
and a leader needs a strong and steady hand
so put me where you think I will be useful
I am ready for whatever you command

you are not without your faults, but I forgive you
and though some may disapprove
I know sometimes it takes a tyrant
to get the rest of us to move

(chorus)
