Invade!

The Roman legions crossed the sea
to the shores of Britain in forty-three.
They built their forts and their roads and towns.
We all serve Emperor Claudius now.
With the gladius and shield
And the javelins they wield
Taking elephants and catapults
Across the battlefield
Putting Britons in their graves
Taking taxes, making slaves
They took command to the edge of the Pict lands.
Romans!
Invade! Invade!
Blood and gore and history made.
Invade! Invade!
This is A.D. Britain, sharpen your blade!
The Saxons plundered, Rome withdrew.
Then the Angles came and others too.
They farmed and fought their way inland
With the ox and plough and a spear in hand.
Many Saxon kings would reign
Over ceorls and over thanes.
Ev’ry kingdom came out fighting
Then they’d do it all again.
There were lots of little wars,
Funny Anglo Saxon laws.
They ruled like this for the next three centuries.
Saxons!
Invade! Invade!
Blood and gore and history made.
Invade! Invade!
This is A.D. Britain, sharpen your blade!
The Saxons ruled til the Viking sails
Rocked up at a monast’ry hard as nails.
England fell as the Viking hoard
Took land and treasure and thralls as their reward.
Those armies battled back and forth
While the Scots and the Picts squared up in the north.
Canute and Edward came and went.
Then Harold met the Normans and we know what that meant.
Here we go again…
Invade! Invade!
Blood and gore and history made.
Invade! Invade!
Romans, Saxons, Vikings, Normans,
This is A.D. Britain, sharpen your blade!
Sharpen your blade!

Just like a Roman

This clever cross-curricular song about the Romans offers a perfect vocal complement to KS2 topic work. Pertinent vocabulary, witty humour and a catchy cha cha rhythm, make this song a sure-fire winner. Boys in particular will love this brilliant song -- it is a descriptive history of Roman times with all the yucky bits left in!
