They came from across the sea, many years ago in A.D.
You can read all the legends from times gone by
How invaders were kept out with the same warcry

They tried to lay one of their roads
To pave their way to their new homes
But maybe they could've built Rome in a day
They couldn't take this land of ours away

This is our land of hope and glory
This is our land, you can't take it away from us
This is our land of hope and glory
And we will never let it go

History always seems to repeat itself
The aggressor trying to take another country's wealth
The poor fight hard to save their land
But the grains taken away and put in another's hands

They take from the poor the old and the weak
And watch the wealthy run to hide in their keep
Never gave away nothing never gave nothing back
But never did this country's backbone ever crack

We'll fight in the future like our fathers in the past
We'll carry the battle to the invaders and make difficult their task
They're raping and plundering the villages on the shore
Burning homelands, stealing from the poor
The people are beaten, the prisoners are slaves
Worked to their deaths, filling empty graves
