Chorus: Impi! wo 'nans' impi iyeza Obani bengathinta amabhubesi? All along the river chelmsford's army lay asleep Come to crush the children of mageba Come to exact the realm's price for peace And in the morning as they saddled up to ride Their eyes shone with the fire and the steel The general told them of the task that lay ahead To bring the people of the sky to heel Chorus Mud and sweat on polished leather Warm rain seeping to the bone They rode through the season's wet weather Straining for a glimpse of the foe Hopeless battalion destined to die Broken by the benders of kings Vainglorious general and victorian pride Would cost him and eight hundred men their lives Chorus They came to the side of the mountain Scouts rode out to spy the land Even as the realm's soldiers lay resting Mageba's forces were at hand And by the evening the vultures were wheeling Above the ruins where the fallen lay An ancient song as old as the ashes Echoed as mageba's warriors marched away Chorus
