The Lyrics

Weird title, huh
I heard there was a secret Lord
That Genghis praised, and it pleased the hordes
But you don't really care for religion, do you?
It goes like this:
They seige, they're swift
The cities fall, their spirits lift
The Asian men who kill for the Mongols

for the Mongols, for the Mongols
for the Mongols, for the Mongols

(----From the Mongols point of view----)

The gates were strong, and the walls were stone
But the bombs were set, the guard'ans thrown,
The carnage
In the moonlight
Overthrew you
We tied the leaders
in a chair
Sustaining life?
Ain't our affair
And from our lips, we praised for all the Mongols

for the Mongols, for the Mongols
for the Mongols, for the Mongols

Our servants, they've been here before
They know the gates, unlocked the doors
Samarkhand was serene until we pillaged
We burned the flag on the marble arch
We left the town in a vict'ry march
A cold and broken town thanks to the Mongols

for the Mongols, for the Mongols
for the Mongols, for the Mongols

(----from a villager's point of view----)

There was a time there was no fear
No terrorist crazed hordes so near
That never show their faces to us, do they
Remember when they burned the gate
Our screams at night, were burning late
But every breath they drew was for the Mongols

for the Mongols, for the Mongols
for the Mongols, for the Mongols

Maybe there's a town above
That'll give the Mongols one big shove
The hordes will fall apart amidst confusion
But their cries, we hear them every night
Their torches, out there, burning bright
But now we're under seige from all the Mongols

for the Mongols, for the Mongols
for the Mongols, for the Mongols
for the Mongols, for the Mongols
for the Mongols, for the Mongols

Ah, don't let the bastards get you down. Don't know this song at all, or remember my history well enough to appreciate it, but it seems quite creative.

Eleven years late, but still have to get my comment on record. Great parody. I could see the torches blazing in my mind.
