The Lyrics

For those of you scratching your head, this song is about the anchient Greek city-state of Sparta. I know it makes me sound nerdish, but it's for history homework. So for all reading, and for the class of Mr. Vasquez, 4th period, Carson Valley Middle School, world history, with the classmates of Dillan Barber and Alex Castro (I'm trying to make this as believable as possible to my teacher that I did this), here it is.
As I walk through the valley where a battle was fought
I take a look at my life and realize it's all I got
'Cause I've been fightin' and trainin' so long that
Well there is not a difference if my mind is gone
I know I've killed a lot of men, you know they deserved it
Most are angry Helot punks I know that you heard of
You better watch how they're fightin', take notes by writtin'
But wait, most of us, we can't read or write
I really have to fight, I ain't got no fear
See right here, I worn these clothes for almost a year, foo'
I'm the toughest G that ever came to anchient Greece
Like on my knees, prayin "Please, make me tougher than Ares"

Been spendin' most our lives
Livin' in a Spartan paradise
Been spendin' most our lives
Livin' in a Spartan paradise
Keep spendin' most our lives
Livin' in a Spartan paradise
Keep spendin' most our lives
Livin' in a Spartan paradise

I'm in this situation that I am facin'
If my son should have a life, should he just go to waste
So I finally now reached a fair choice
Let him die, he wouldn't last a minute with the boys
I'm a battlistic fool with killin' guys I hate
Got my sword in my hand, had it since I was eight
I'm a cadet, he's not, get rebel Helots
Gonna fight for this place, 'cause I am the shee-ot, foo'
Death ain't nothin' but a heartbeat away
But it's a life, do or die, that's Zues's way
On Sparta land now but am I knockin' on Hades' doe'
But hey, we're the Spartans, we're the show

Tell me why it's right to kill and fight
Will this soldier state live long tonight

Been spendin' most our lives
Livin' in a Spartan paradise
Been spendin' most our lives
Livin' in a Spartan paradise
Keep spendin' most our lives
Livin' in a Spartan paradise
Keep spendin' most our lives
Livin' in a Spartan paradise

We're cadets at twenty, more mature at thirty
Sixty we retire, age is always hurting
Everybody's fightin', but wifey isn't lookin'
She's spendin' time with the house chores, I wonder what she's cookin'
The enemy won't learn, so we're gonna kill 'em
They never undersatnd, this oughta' thrill 'em
But here's some news, we're overjoyed
Another war, we're goin' off to fight against the Troys foo'

Been spendin' most our lives
Livin' in a Spartan paradise
Been spendin' most our lives
Livin' in a Spartan paradise
Keep spendin' most our lives
Livin' in a Spartan paradise
Keep spendin' most our lives
Livin' in a Spartan paradise
Tell me why it's right to kill and fight
Will this soldier state live long tonight
Tell me why it's right to kill and fight
Will this soldier state live long tonight
