This is a tribute to one of the most fantastic characters of all time.

You don't have to see the show to read the poem/song, but it helps.




^ This video depicts the scene in Avatar: The Last Airbender when Uncle Iroh sings "Little Soldier Boy" in honor of his son, who died in a war. Only the first verse of this song is ever revealed in the series, so I thought I would write up some more lyrics in order to make the song complete.

In honor of Uncle Iroh, and also in honor of Mako, the voice actor for Iroh, who passed away.

Here is the instrumental (without words) of the song.



Leaves from the vine,
Falling so slow
Like tiny, fragile shells
Drifting in the foam

Little soldier boy,
Come marching home
Brave soldier boy...
Comes marching home.

War carries on,
By justice, we march
To victory, we're lead
Our flag hanging high

Little soldier boy,
Come marching home
Brave soldier boy...
Comes marching home.

Nations fall below
Underneath our flag
Freedom and greatness
Our driving, thriving force

Little soldier boy,
Come marching home
Brave soldier boy...
Comes marching home.

World wide, we march
Hearts carrying gold
They fear us, and they hate us
Still forward, we march

Little soldier boy,
Come marching home
Brave soldier boy...
Comes marching home.

Through the war, we spread
Thousands live, and die
Soldiers fall, we fall
Nations rise and fight

Little soldier boy,
Come marching home
Brave soldier boy...
Comes marching home.

As the lie expands
Greatness... yes, its spread
Blood shed world wide
Lost our way, we have

Leaves from the vine,
Falling so slow...
Like tiny, fragile shells,
Drifting in the foam.

Little, soldier boy...
Come marching home
This soldier boy
Isn't marching home.

I have never seen the movie that this references, but I like what you have done with it!
