The Lyrics

With its story of a Republic, a Grand Army, a Confederacy rooted in separatism, and epic battles, it’s easy to see connections between the Clone Wars and the Civil War. In fact, Separatist leader Count Dooku (Christopher Lee) has a distant familial connection to Confederate leader Robert E. Lee! (Life and its ironies, am I right)
Oh have you heard the cruel news
About our tragic fate?
From Utupau's deep caverns
Our forces did abate
Droid armies have been shut down
Our fleets are a shattered mess
Forever more defeated
Is the mighty CIS

Oh, the mighty CIS
Oh, the mighty CIS
Forever more defeated is the mighty CIS

We proudly entered battle
Our armada filled with pride
Above the skies of Coruscant
Our great Count Dooku died
So naively we thought we could
Spread freedom east and west
But lo, that dream has ended like
The mighty CIS

Oh, the mighty CIS
Oh, the mighty CIS
But lo, that dream has ended like the mighty CIS

Remember when we battered them
On Geonosis plains
And how our ships would make them flee
To hyperspacing lanes
From Haruun Kal to Parcelus
Republic saw our best
Remember these, the vic'tries of the mighty CIS

Oh, the mighty CIS
Oh, the mighty CIS
Remember these, the vic'tries of the mighty CIS

We have lost to a ruler
Who betrayed us with his game
He wiped out all our leaders
Lord Sidious, his name
Though traitors to the Empire
Our cause won't be repressed
We’ll not forsake the driving force
That made the CIS

Oh, the mighty CIS
Oh, the mighty CIS
We’ll not forsake the driving force the made the CIS

Droid legions were our soldiers
Destroyers and B2s
Our cruisers staffed with strategists
Who chose the strongest crews
Though we were oft’ outnumbered
In battle’s fatal test
We persevered and fought them hard, the mighty CIS

Oh, the mighty CIS
Oh, the mighty CIS
We persevered and fought them hard, the mighty CIS

So here’s to our Confederacy
And fighters brave who died
In the Clone War’s greatest battles
Our forces would not hide
When a rebel banner rises up *
To carry on our quest
Let us honor them as brothers
Of the mighty CIS

Oh, the mighty CIS
Oh, the mighty CIS
Let us honor them as brothers of the mighty CIS

Oh, the mighty CIS
Oh, the mighty CIS
Let us honor them as brothers of the mighty CIS
* Many of the former Separatist non-droid fighters went on to join the Rebellion against the newly-formed Empire
