Lyrics

Brilliantly performed escape
Divisions in dramatic shape
Rearguard hostilities, anti-tank lines
High speed withdrawal, secured by mines

Demand for replenishments
Gasoline and nourishment
Yet guns rapid firing, the dreadful 88
Inflicting damage, ravage armored plates

Trying to rescue what's left of his troops
Save them from imprisonment
No further glory in future offensives
Evacuate this continent
Tormented by malady and foul intrigue
The genius forced to depart
Guiding his army till the very end
Fighting bold and hard

(guitar lead: Paul)

One last blow at Kasserine, then vanish from the scene
GI's fleeing in panic, Tigers on their heels
One more courageous triumph, chaos; creation of steel

Trying to rescue what's left of his troops
Save them from imprisonment
No further glory in future offensives
Evacuate this continent
Tormented by malady and foul intrigue
The genius forced to depart
Leaving his valiant and tough 'Afrikaner'
With pain in his heart
