Welsh Marcher Lordships

So here is the latest video from the Legendary Ten Seconds, this time about the Mortimers and other Marcher Lords.

 

 

Here are the lyrics:

THE MARCHER LORDS

 

ON THE BORDER WITH WALES WE STAND

DEFENCE AND CONQUEST WE HAVE IN HAND

OUR KING AND COUNTRY WE MAY SERVE

THOUGH IT’S OUR OWN POWER WE PRESERVE

 

THE MARCHER LORDS ARE WE

MASTERS OF OUR DESTINY

OH THE MARCHER LORDS ARE WE

IF YOU CROSS OUR PATH TREAD CAREFULLY

OH THE MARCHER LORDS ARE WE

 

IT’S A LAND OF OPPORTUNITY

JOIN OUR RAIDS IN THE WELSH COUNTRY

LAND AND RICHES WE ALWAYS SEEK

WE EXPLOIT THE POOR AND DESPISE THE MEEK

 

THE MARCHER LORDS ARE WE

MASTERS OF OUR DESTINY

THE MARCHER LORDS ARE WE

IF YOU CROSS OUR PATH TREAD CAREFULLY

OH THE MARCHER LORDS ARE WE

 

SEE OUR CASTLES MADE OF STONE

THE SEEDS OF STRIFE THAT WE HAVE SOWN

OF OUR POWER YOU MUST TAKE HEED

OR ON YOUR KNEES YOU WILL SOON PLEAD

 

THE MARCHER LORDS ARE WE

MASTERS OF OUR DESTINY

THE MARCHER LORDS ARE WE

IF YOU CROSS OUR PATH TREAD CAREFULLY

OH THE MARCHER LORDS ARE WE

 

PRIVATE WARS ARE OUR LIBERTY

DON’T INTERFERE JUST LEAVE US BE

BUT BRING UNTO TO US A ROYAL WRIT

AND YOU WILL SOON BE EATING IT

 

THE MARCHER LORDS ARE WE

MASTERS OF OUR DESTINY

THE MARCHER LORDS ARE WE

IF YOU CROSS OUR PATH TREAD CAREFULLY

OH THE MARCHER LORDS ARE WE
