Ask a Roman soldier!

LYRICS

ego sum centurio
In the Roman army.
Here to conquer England
(Though I find the English barmy).

We build straight roads,
Watch blood sports to relax.
You’ll need to worship our gods now,
And pay us lots of tax.

ego sum centurio
In the Roman army.
Here to conquer England
(Though I find the English barmy).

They live in huts,
Their buildings are archaic,
We’ll knock them down and build a town
Resplendent with mosaic.

ego sum centurio
In the Roman army.
Here to conquer England
(Though I find the English barmy).
