„Mein Sohn bitten für dich ein weiteres Königreich, für das, was ich lasse
ist zu klein für dich“

In der Nähe von Osten, in einem Teil des antiken Griechenlands
In einem alten Land namens Mazedonien
Wurde einen Sohn geboren, Philipp von Makedonien
Die Legende, dass sein Name war Alexander

At the age of nineteen he became the Macedon King
And he swore to free all of Asia Minor
By the Aegean Sea in three thirty four B.C.
He utterly beat the armies of Persia

Alexander der große
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander der große
Became a legend amongst mortal men

King Darius the third defeated, fled Persia
The Scythians fell by the river Jaxartes
Then Egypt fell to the Macedon King as well
And he founded the city called Alexandria

By the Tigris river, he met King Darius again
And crushed him again at the battle of Arbela
Entered Babylon and Susa, treasures he found
Took Persepolis, the capital of Persia

Alexander der große
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander der große
Became a God amongst mortal men

Phrygian King had bound a chariot yoke
And Alexander cut the Gordian knot
And legend said thatWho untied the knot
He would become the master of Asia

Hedonism, he spread far and wide
The Macedonian learned mind
Their culture was a western way of life
He paved the way for Christianity
Marching on, marching on

The battle weary marching side by side
Alexander’s army line by line
They wouldn’t follow him to India
Tired of the combat, pain and the glory

Alexander der große
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander der große
He died of fever in Babylon
