SABATON


Poltava Lyrics

Tiden tärt den här som gått
Vandrat många mil
Knektar tröttna slitna var
20 000 man

Tsaren bränt sin egna jord
Ingenting fanns kvar
Hungern rev och döden stod
Redo för ett slag

Hör upp, led väck din armé
Ge dig, och lämna min mark

Poltava
Genom rök och damm de red
Poltava
Slogs för livet led för led
Poltava
Tappra män til himmelen steg
Poltava

Svenska härens ledarskap
Lidit nederlag
Konung kan ej strida mer
Skadad stod han bi

Rehnskiöld uti striden red
Värja sträckt för vind
Slog som våg mot härdat berg
Tvingad till reträtt

Lyssna, Du Karolus Rex
Frukta, ty din tid är här

Bragd om livet, eld och död
20 000 man i nöd
Så fäkta på
Gul och blå
Karoliners sista slag
Mötte döden, ödets dag
Guds vilja ske
krigare


English:

Time has worn the soldiers down
Marched for many miles
In the eastern lands so cursed
Time to make a stand

Tsar has scorched his nation's land
Nothing to be found
Hunger grasp the soliders heart
20 000 men strong

Listen, excuse for a king
Trust me, this fight you can't win

Poltava
Rode to certain death and pain
Poltava
Swedish soldiers met their bane
Poltava
Sacrificed their lives in vain
Poltava

In the shade of morning mist
Advancing on their foe
Bullets break the silent air
Wasted battleplan

Swedish forces stand alone
King has left command
Rule is left to lesser men
Waiting for their chance

Listen, obey my command
Hear me, or die by my hand

Russian armies blocked their way
20 000 lost that day
They bled the ground
Peace they found
There's no sign of victory
King Carolus had to flee
And leave the land
Leave command

Madness, curse your feeble horde
Fear me, you'll die by my sword
