Sir Christopher Lee
Música y Letra: Marco Sabiu y Marie-Claire Calvet



Young Charlemagne:
Does a man have to fight all his life,
only in death to take flight to the skies?
Warmongers vie to take my throne,
no respect is ever shown.

Ghost Charlemagne:
In borderland raids,
they came in their hordes,
ransacking villages,
taking the spoils!
With nothing to lose
and possessions few.
Bold, sturdy,
fearless and cruel!

Young Charlemagne:
Defiant of Baptism on pain of death,
tough measures call for me to be ruthless.
To set an example to the rebels,
draconian for their worship of devils.

Ghost Charlemagne:
Four thousand men all dead in one day.
They would not renounce their heathen ways.
Thirty years of campaigning consumed
to subject those Pagans to Christianhood.

Choir:
The Bloody Verdict of Verden!

Young Charlemagne:
Rivers flowing red
with the blood of four thousand men
that I did behead!

Young and Ghost Charlemagne:
I shed Blood of Saxon Men!
I shed the Blood of the Saxon men!
I shed the Blood of the Saxon men!
I shed the Blood of the Saxon men!
I shed it at Verden!
I shed the Blood of the Saxon men!
I shed the Blood of four thousand Saxon men!
I shed Blood of the Saxon men!
I shed the Blood of the Saxon man!
I shed the Blood of the Saxon man!

Young Charlemagne:
Shall my realm be taken as I toil
to force others out of Frankish soil?
And I return to learn that all is lost,
yet my companions I trust,
the sword and the Cross.

Ghost Charlemagne:
Converting entire tribes by the sword,
in the name of Jesus Christo, our Lord!
On that day in Verden,
no mercy given.
Victory to the chosen people!

Young Charlemagne:
Weary grow I of this task which fell
on the shoulders of a man who yearns to spend.
But one hour with wife and child
to gaze on faces innocent and mild.

Ghost Charlemagne:
Four thousand men all dead in one day.
They would not renounce their heathen ways.
Thirty years of campaigning consumed
to subject those pagans to Christianhood.

Choir:
To build a better world than even has been seen.

Young and Ghost Charlemagne:
An empire made great by deeds of great kings.
I shed Blood of Saxon Men!
I shed the Blood of the Saxon men!
I shed the Blood of the Saxon men!
I shed the Blood of the Saxon men!
I shed it at Verden!
I shed the Blood of the Saxon men!
I shed the Blood of four thousand Saxon men!
I shed Blood of the Saxon men!
I shed the Blood of the Saxon man!
I shed the Blood of the Saxon man!
