Alexander The Great

Near to the east

In a part of ancient Greece

In an ancient land called Macedonia

Was born a son

To Philip of Macedon

The legend his name was Alexander

At the age of nineteen

He became the Macedon King

And he swore to free all of Asia Minor

By the Aegian Sea

Alexander the Great

His name struck fear into hearts of men

Became a legend 'mongst mortal men

King Darius the third

Defeated fled Persia

The Scythians fell by the river Jaxartes

By the Tigris river

He met King Darius again

And crushed him again in the battle of Arbela

Entering Babylon And Susa,

treasures he found

Took Persepolis the capital of Persia

A Phrygian King had bound a chariot yoke

And Alexander cut the 'Gordian knot'

And legend said that who untied the knot

He would become the master of Asia

Helonism he spread far and wide

The Macedonian learned mind

Their culture was a western way of life Alexander's army line by line

They wouldn't follow him to India

Tired of the combat, pain and the glory Alexander the Great

He died of fever in Babylon

may the force be with you

buzz it!
