A boy becomes a soldier
Conscription calls him in
Soon baptism of fire
And thus his war begins

He is the Landser
The invincible Landser

In battle after battle
Not one of them was lost
For bravery decorated
His reward the Iron Cross

March direction changing
Eastward all now go
Deep inland penetrations
Then halted by the snow
His führer leaves him freezing
Bitter taste of defeat
In doubt and disillusioned
The Landser must retreat

Enduring first winter
Once more he storms again
The blitz machine in motion
Through unknown barren land
No pausing in the advance
Enter the gates to hell
Stalingrad's inferno
Will he live to tell?

He is the Landser
The exhausted Landser

His leaders commit treason
In pools of blood and pus
Comes realisation
To be nothing but dust

He is the Landser
The betrayed Landser

One of the few to break through
Long journey home of fear
And in loving arms of mother
Flow finally the tears
