My son ask for thyself another
Kingdom, for that which I leave
is too small for thee
(King Philip of Macedonia – 339 B.C.)

Near to the east
In a part of ancient Greece
In an ancient land called Macedonia
Was born a son
To Philip of Macedon
The legend his name was Alexander

At the age of nineteen
He became the Macedon King
And he swore to free all of Asia Minor
By the Aegian Sea
In 334 B.C.
He utterly beat the armies of Persia

Alexander the Great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great
Became a legend ‘mongst 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 in the battle of Arbela
Entering Babylon
And Susa, treasures he found
Took Persepolis the capital of Persia

Alexander the Great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great
Became a God amongst mortal men

A Phrygian King had bound a chariot yoke
And Alexander cut the ‘Gordian knot’
And legend said that who untied the knot
He would become the master of Asia

Hellenism 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 the Great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great
He died of fever in Babylon

Prevod na srpski

Aleksandar Veliki

Sine moj, traži sebi drugo kraljevstvo
jer ovo koje za mnom ostaje
premalo je za tebe.
(Kralj Filip Makedonski – 339 g. pre nove ere)

U blizini istoka,
u području stare Grčke,
u drevnoj zemlji Makedoniji
rođen je sin
Filipa Makedonskog,
legenda, zvao se Aleksandar.

Kad je napunio 19 godina,
postao je kralj Makedonije
i zakleo se da će osloboditi čitavu
Malu Aziju uz Egejsko more.
334. g. pre nove ere
sasvim je porazio persijske vojske.

Aleksandar Veliki…
Njegovo ime unosilo je strah u kosti muškaraca.
Aleksandar Veliki
postao je legenda među smrtnicima.

Kralj Darije III
savladan pobeže iz Persije.
Skiti su pobeđeni kod reke Jaksart,
pa je i Egipat pripao makedonijskom kralju,
i osnovao je grad Aleksandriju.

Nadomak reke Tigar
ponovo se suočio s kraljem Darijusom
i smlavio ga u bici kod Arbele.
Ulazeći u Vavilon
i Susu, našao je blago
i osvojio Persepolj, prestonicu Persijskog carstva.

Aleksandar Veliki…
Njegovo ime unosilo je strah u kosti muškaraca.
Aleksandar Veliki
postao je bog među smrtnicima.

Frigijski kralj jurnuo je dvokolicom
i Aleksandar je presekao gordijev čvor.
Proročište je predviđalo da će kralj Azije
postati onaj ko odreši taj čvor.

Širio je helenizam uzduž i popreko
makedonijski mudrac.
Oni su živeli zapadnjačkim životom.
Proširio je hrišćanstvo.

Maršira, maršira…
Od bitke iscrpljena uporedo maršira
u liniji Aleksandrova vojska.
Ne bi ga pratili do Indije
umorni od borbe, bola i slave.

Aleksandar Veliki…
Njegovo ime unosilo je strah u kosti muškaraca.
Aleksandar Veliki
umro je od groznice u Vavilonu.
