Many many years ago, when Persia came ashore
Heeding Leonidas’ call, The Spartans went to war
Joined by their brothers, a few against the fateful horde
Hellenic hearts are set aflame, the hot gates calls their name
A final stand, stop the Persians, spear in hand
Form a wall, live to fall, and live forever
Then, and again. Sing of three hundred men
Glory and death, Spartans will never surrender
Morning has broken, today they’re fighting in the shade
When arrows blocked the sun they fell, tonight they dine in hell
By traitor’s hand, secret passage, to their land
Know his name, know his shame will last forever
