"For The King" as written by and Oscar Hammerstein Ii Richard Rodgers....
Men! March again
the sun will rise and we begin to fight
for lord and land and freedom for our kin

Brave! Man and slave
The gold you earn, The women you claim
So fight! and when the foe is beat A victor’s feast

Turn from the light now don’t throw your weapons down
Show your respect for the king
No hope for life shall take you from this ground
tell me again (for the king)

We lie! Four of five of every man will surely die
For I, Will bravely lead the pack from far behind

So fight! Kill and die
Mangle limbs and splatter eyes
Fight! Stand and die and pray for heaven’s light

Go to sleep now clod but proud
Knowing no name’s forsaken
