good evenin' madam, how's the household goin?
the boys are lookin' strong, they just keep on growin, huh?
well anyway, i'm afraid there's sad news
no, sorry to say, it's more than a bad bruise
i've come here tonight on behalf of the lord
to give to your eldest son his father's sword
your husband won't be needing it, our war was a disaster
he fell courageously in the service of his master

he was leading our brigade, unafraid
always first to give you aid in any raid never delayed
he just could not evade, every single blade
but he kept on swingin' after every hit
never allowed himself to quit
i was fightin' by his side, when he died wide-eyed
i did all i could to hide my tears from him when i cried
but he ordered me to stay true to the job i had to do
i drew his sword and proclaimed that his honor will never be shamed

so to you i bow
and as for you, lad, this is your sword now
i know your father taught you well
he always bragged about how quickly you'd excel
and i don't doubt it, i bet he really felt blessed
to have a son like you, so you should always do your best
i've done what i came for, so now i'll take my leave
and let you all alone, so that you may also grieve
