When the Midlands Goes to War


Lyrics: Master Cerian Cantwr
Music: Star of the County Down            



Chorus:
We'll step along with a marching song,
Battle standard to the fore.
As the armies mass, we'll be kicking ass
When the Midlands goes to war.

Verses:
Come all you gallant heroes, pay heed to what I say,
I'll sing you a song of glory, great deeds that win the day.
We follow the dragon in annulo, our banner justly famed.
In the van our wicked leader, Sgt Dietrich is his name.

'Twas in the third week in August, our forces went away.
They made a sight so glorious, scarlet tabards on display.
The Midlands men marched to the east from all points near and far,
And we all did come together on the field at the Pennsic War.

Now we have left our river shore, for the Crown has made it's call.
We answer here with axe and spear, with sword and great pike maul.
When the cannon goes, we will smite our foes and the Tiger will be clawed -
Then we will feast on the men of the East, for we're Bardolph's brute squad.

Now here's to Master Carlo, Gunther, Damon, and Aileen;
Our unit sub-commanders, whose blades are ever keen.
They'll lead us on to glory, 'neath the Dietchfanock's command,
And we'll plant the dragon standard in the heart of Debatable Land.
