"My son ask for thyself another
is too small for thee"

In a part of ancient Greece
Was born a son
The legend his name was Alexander
At the age of nineteen
And he swore to free all of Asia Minor
In 334 B.C.

Alexander the Great
Alexander the Great

Defeated fled Persia
Then Egypt fell to the Macedon King as well

He met King Darius again
Entering Babylon
Took Persepolis the capital of Persia
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Became a God amongst mortal men
A Phrygian King had bound a chariot yoke
And legend said that who untied the knot

The Macedonian learned mind
He paved the way for Christianity
Marching on, marching on
Alexander's army line by line
Tired of the combat, pain and the glory
Alexander the Great
Alexander the Great
