NICE INTERESTING STORY

    - Patrick E. Muth/Catnip Pat

I would really like to use a reinforcing cuss word of glory to describe how awesomely refreshing it was to listen to this song. I have heard this type of music before ,but it's been a while and I never thought I would get to hear & review one on Broadjam.com. Great inflection/dynamics in the narrators story telling voice. The history lesson and historical figures the author chose were on spot and it took me the listener in this case with a affinity for history on a little refresher !!! history lesson journey through time. Well Well Well Done. Hats off!!

    - Ante Novaselic
Lyrics

Conquerors

When northern Europe was covered by ice
Neanderthals roamed where the weather was nice
Europe was theirs, they were all alone,
living in caves, making tools of stone.
Only their bones are left today,
our ancestors came on the scene to stay.

Indigenous Greeks left hardly a trace,
the new Europeans took over their place.
Arriving on horseback, with carts and gear
from far away Caucasus by the Crimea.
They scrapped the original matriarchy
to replace it with all male democracy.

Eons before the Romans built Rome
Etruscans had called the peninsula home.
Porsenna, their king, relinquished his land.
In defeat he lent the Romans a hand
by giving them access to letters and art.
That was how Rome got its cultural start.

Rome had aqueducts, temples, a forum,
and bathrooms with plumbing for Romans' decorum.
Turkey and Spain and the place they called Gaul
were conquered, but Rome was about to fall
to waves of Vandals and Teutons and Goths,
and lead in their plumbing which killed them like moths.

Boadica was beaten by Roman force
and Romans built villas in English gorse.
Angles, Saxons and Vikings moved in
Alfred's, Aethelstan's, Harold's kin
But William of Normandy won the crown
and said, "C'est mon pays, maintenant! Kneel down!"

New York was one Colony that pulled out
from England and George and went about
creating the states' independency,
A new world that still had the tendency
to ignore that the country in fact wasn't new
but already belonged to a different crew.

It is no surprise, it's the conquerors' way,
"Move over, it's our land now," is what they all say.
