Oh Sweet Babylon
Alas! Alexanders soldiers have come and gone
They have raped and pillaged beautiful Babylon.
What was once the Flower of the Euphraidies
are now in ruin and rubble from their armies.
Oh Sweet beautiful Babylon how I mourn for thee
Your Hanging Gardens and flowers no longer will I see.
Once the streets were filled with peddlers bartering their wares
Now they are desolate with their bones and my despair.
Oh sweet Babylon my own true love defended thee
His dust and ashes now blow in the breeze.
A slash and a thrust from a fiery sword,
Felled the warrior that I adored.
Oh Sweet Babylon These soldiers have taken all from meí
My love , My Heart, my family and my virginity.
ravaged by the victors one and two at a time
No one to stop them from doing this vile war crime.
Oh Sweet Babylon I have been thrown in your streets,
Among the bones dirt and blood suffered from our defeat.
Alone, abused and half dead I feel I canít go on
My funeral pyre will be on the streets of my Beloved Sweet Babylon.
