Lyrics

Transferred to the South East, Gebirgsbatallion
Promoted Oberleutnant, wearing high decorations
Threatened Austria requests, German reinforcements
Deployment of the 14th Army, Rommel's Detachment

To capture Mount Matajur
This mission's last objective
Savage close quarter fights
Prove past drills effective
Pressing on, climbing steep
Reaching the points marked
No other alternative, go forward and go hard!

Causing heavy casualties, clear opposing nests
Overpower outposts, seizing the crest
Rushing on to Longarone, speed means surprise
Whole brigades surrender, vanquished at sunrise

As the battlefields go silent
And troops leave their frontiers
Not to command in combat, for over 20 years

Loyalty, bravery, at last bring his reward
To gain this palm for gallantry, the highest award
Join those in remembrance, valorous elite
For fatherland and emperor, Pour Le Merite!
