  • Sabaton – Sparta lyrics

    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 gate calls their name

    A final stand, stop the Persians, spear in hand
    Form a wall, live to fall, and live Forever

    Sparta! Hellas!
    Then, and again, sing of three hundred men!
    Slaughter! Persians!
    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

    Sparta! Hellas!
    Then, and again, sing of three hundred men!
    Slaughter! Persians!
    Glory and death, Spartans will never surrender!

    [solo]

    Sparta! Hellas!
    Then, and again, sing of three hundred men!
    Slaughter! Persians!
    Glory and death, Spartans will never surrender!
