"Smoking Snakes" as written by Joakim Broden and Paer Sundstroem....
We remember, no surrender
Heroes of our century

Three men stood strong and they held out for long
Going into the fight to their death that awaits
Crazy or brave, will it end in the grave?
As they're giving their lives
As their honor dictates

Far, far from home to a war
Fought on foreign soil and far
Far from known tell their tale
Their forgotten story
Cobras Fumantes, eterna é sua vitória

Rise from the blood of your heroes
You, were the ones who refused to surrender
The three rather died than to flee
Know that your memory
Will be sung for a century

Three took the blow while impressing their foe
Throwing dice with their lives as they're paying the price
Sent to raise hell, hear the toll of the bell
It is calling for you as the Wehrmacht devised

Far, far from home to a war
Fought on foreign soil and far
Far from known tell their tale
Their forgotten story
Cobras Fumantes, eterna é sua vitória

Rise from the blood of your heroes
You, were the ones who refused to surrender
The three rather died than to flee
Know that your memory
Will be sung for a century

Sent over seas to be cast into fire
Fought for a purpose with pride and desire
Blood of the brave they would give to inspire
Cobras Fumantes, your memory lives

Sent over seas to be cast into fire
Fought for a purpose with pride and desire
Blood of the brave they would give to inspire
Cobras Fumantes, your memory lives

Cobras Fumantes, eterna é sua vitória

Rise from the blood of your heroes
You, were the ones who refused to surrender
The three rather died than to flee
Know that your memory
Will be sung for a century

We remember, no surrender
Heroes of our century

    General CommentThis is about three Brazilian soldiers of the Brazilian Expeditionary Force (AKA: Smoking Snakes) who, ambushed by Germans, fought until their ammo ran out and died in a bayonet charge. The Wehrmacht was so impressed that they buried the Brazilian soldiers with full honors and wrote on their graves "Three Brazilian heroes".

    Also: "Cobras fumantes eterna é sua vitória!" means "Smoking Snakes eternal is your victory!"
