Counterstrike

Counterstrike – Lyrics

Music by: Brodén / Text by: Brodén / Sundström

Lyrics:

Kickstart fighter launch
Throttle set to full
Speed king race to win
Afterburners roaring

Ghostlike counterstrike
Takes them by surprise

Score 307
Israelis rule the heaven

Jordan attacks
Israel crush that
Futile attempt
Control Jerusalem

Drive back, surprise attack
Take the western wall
Next day make them pay
Over river Jordan

Syria last in line
Head for golan heights
Strike without a warning
See the Syria forces falling

Syria attacks
Israel crushed their
Lines of defence
Ruling golan heights

Six days of fire, one day of rest
June 67
Taught them respect
Control Jerusalem

Three nations fallen in six days of war
Traitorous neighbours
Received as deserved
Under the sun in the dust of the war
One nation standing stronger than before

First into Egypt and sent them to hell
Then turned their forces to Jordan
Climb up the mountains, where Syria awaits
Break them in hours
Protect holy land

Historic fact:

The Six Day War was fought between 5th and 10th June 1967 by Israel and an Arab alliance of Egypt, Syria and Jordan. Israel felt threatened by an increased Egyptian army presence in the Suez Canal and a naval blockade in the Gulf of Aqaba.

Israel launched an attack and destroyed the Egyptian, Jordanian, Syrian and Iraqi air forces, before destroying Egyptian tanks in the Sinai Desert, reaching the Suez Canal, clearing the West Bank of Jordanian forces and capturing the Golan Heights.
