News that came that morning told that the main force had been slain,
Chance for peace and justice gone, and all talks had been in vain
A prince had been offended and he had gone the path of war
Now that 1500 men are dead, and the Zulus at the door

Zulus attack,
Fight back to back 
Show them no mercy and
Fire at will,
Kill or be killed 
Facing, awaiting

A hostile spear, a new frontier, the end is near 
There's no surrender 
The lines must hold, their story told, Rorke's Drift controlled 

Later on that fateful day as they head towards the drift,
Stacking boxes, fortifying, preparations must be swift
Spears and shields of oxen hide facing uniforms and guns,
As the rifles fire echoes higher, beating like the sound of drums

Zulus attack,
Fight back to back 
Show them no mercy and
Fire at will,
Kill or be killed 
Facing, awaiting

A hostile spear, a new frontier, the end is near 
There's no surrender 
The lines must hold, their story told, Rorke's Drift controlled 

1879, when a few held the line 
(Back to back, attack, the dead are stacked )
When the last stand was made, and the Empire saved 
(Back to back, attack, the dead are stacked )

Zulus attack,
Fight back to back 
Show them no mercy and
Fire at will,
Kill or be killed 
Facing, awaiting

A hostile spear, a new frontier, the end is near 
There's no surrender 
The lines must hold, their story told, Rorke's Drift controlled 

A hostile spear, a new frontier, the end is near 
There's no surrender 
The lines must hold, their story told, Rorke's Drift controlled
