Lyrics
The troop was weak and weary, rations running low
Mission seemed impossible, we had to save the show
Lost our map and compass, canteens got a hole
David took Goliath a little rock and roll

[Chorus]
Rewind operator gonna kill 'em with sound
Bawling out murder and selector come down

Just like General Custer, there's Indians all around
Wagon train's on fire, war cry bugle sound
Never had to worry when the chips were down
Held each others hands and we stood our ground

[Chorus: x2]

Better beans and freedom than cake and slavery
As long as we're together that's good enough for me
Every inch a battle, had to see it through
With some love and laughs and each other too

[Chorus]

We might be mad or stubborn, we'll hold our heads upright
The cavalry's a-coming to save the show tonight
Just like in a movie, the ending must be good
We'll ride off into sunset just like I said we would

Sing

[Chorus: x2]

are-are-are-are-rring, I like-a
Are-are-are-are-rring
Are-are-are-are-rring
Ring de alarm and not a sound is dying, whoah
Ring de alarm and not a sound is dying

"Help!
Help!
Help!"
