Somebody's First to Die - Orignal Version


Master Alexander de Seton            


Chorus:
Somebody's first to die boys,
Somebody's first to die!
We're all together on the field,
But somebody's first to die!

Verses:
The army's march together!
Hark! Hear the battle's din!
Al-Caid's men are brave and bold!
We know that we will win! But...

The archers start the battle.
They're deadly from afar.
The pikes and shieldwall close up tight,
For now we march to war! But...

The pikemen stand together,
And face against the foe.
The swordsmen, they march forward,
To the shieldwall they will go. But...

There's archers and there's greatswords
Soldiers and Chivalry!
With sword and pike and the King's good word
We'll see our foemen flee! But...

The King and the army's high command,
They all survey the field.
The valient foe's unbroken yet;
One charge before they yield! But...

And when we stand victorious,
'Mid bodies piled high,
We'll all search out our gallant friends
And grieve for those who've died. But...
