Last night the past screamed a plight,
Such a tragedy, such a fight
His hair was bedraggled and
His clothes posed
A silent hate lingering out
Last night a fight broke out,
He woke, took, many hooked,
He stole our men like a fox,
And words as strong as an ox
He came, he saw, he took, he went,
And ravaged every town he went
His servants lived under grand tents
Men were scared, speared, and never spared.
Those were the ways of Genghis Khan.
