The Lads Who Fought & Won by Real McCoy


That Serbian man
Assassinated Archduke Ferdinand
With what would transpire
Would change the world
And set Europe afire
On one side the Czar and the King
And on the other stood
The Kaiser and Ottoman thang
The boys and the men and the girls
Were armed and mobilized
Their forces aligned
They crawled through the mud
And they cut through the wire
A constant assault of artillery fire
The curtain of shrapnel
Took the flesh from the bone
They fell in the field
And never got home
They were the lads
Who fought and won
Up over the bridge
A heavy fortress lies
Atop of the ridge
Bristling with guns
Austro-Hungarian Empire dug in
They fought through the night
Like the devil at dawn
The enemy captured
Or dead on the ground
It wasn't achieved without terrible loss
Posthumous award of Victoria Cross
They were the lads
Who fought and won
