The Lyrics

[Uther Pendragon]
We've been warring on this island - ever since Rome withdrew [1]
and now it's swarming those Saxons - they come in numbers not so few:
It's pouring Saxons, and they sure mess around
Invading Saxons, they burn our towns to ground

[Arthur]
Well I'll go fighting all those Saxons, I'll fight the Angles and Jutes
I'll draw a sword off a stone and I'll fight till they are gone - and then I will give my salute
I'll fight the Saxons - with my cataphracts [2]
I'll fight the Saxons - until their backbone cracks

When their warbands siege that city, pedyts[3] gonna shoot with bow -
Cataphracts will charge with the contus[4] and sword, they will reap just what they've sown
I'll fight the Saxons - raise my Draco[5] high
I'll fight the Saxons - harass them day and night

And when we're done with the Saxons, I'll check the immigration policy
I'll found the Round Table Team from my cavalry cream and push the Saxons back in the sea -
Hey, it's coming Saxons - from Germany
Immigrating Saxons - to Britanny

[Uther and Arthur]
We've been warring on this island - ever since Rome withdrew
and now it's swarming those Saxons - they come in numbers not so few:
It's pouring Saxons, and they sure mess around
Invading Saxons, they burn our towns to ground
[1] = AD 410[2] Heavily armoured Roman cavalrymen, with both rider and horse armoured, fighting with lance and sword[3] From Latin "pedites", light infantry[4] Long Roman cavalry spear[5] Windsock-like Roman cavalry standard modelled as a dragon

555--footnotes, I don't know, never thought about it myself--tend not to because my parodies are pretty self explanitory, but I liked the parody and I always appreciate Tommy's commentary.
