The Lyrics

Sine Phil is going to do the "Knights Who Speak Latin" of the Knights Templar, I will continue the idea a bit further and do a song of the "other" Outrémer monastic order.
Knights Hospitaller
Order of the Saint John
Ride in the battle
they get Saracens done
No battle they've ever missed
alas, those monks of war
They take left flank of battle
they are superior

Knights of Saint John
Get their foes done
Yes, knights of Saint John

Knights Hospitaller
taking care of the ill
they will treat all the infirm
and do the God's will
In their hospital
in Jerusalem town
you will get the solace
if disease gets you down

Knights of Saint John
Get the taints done
Yes, knights of Saint John

Knights in red surcoats
wearing crosses of white
they are peers of the Templars
they are monastic knights
Courage they've never missing
neither in war or peace
they will win all their battles
just as well as disease

Knights of Saint John
Get their tasks done
Yes, knights of Saint John
The order of Knights Hospitaller (Knights of St. John, Order of Malta) is still existent today, and it is today a purely medical order, though many brethren have secular military background. Today's brother knights drive ambulances and emergency helicopters.

Forsooth, 'tis the Medieval Mama (far from her first parody on the era), displease her and there's Helsinki to pay.

Very good, Susanna. But instead of "win all their battles," would it be better to say, "defeat all their foes," since they defeat, not win disease?
