  • It Starts with Temujin born 1167His father a powerful warlordBut when he was ten some treacherous menPoisoned his daddy oh ohTheir allies were gutless they turned on his familyThey took young Temujin in a cageBut Temujin was fearless and he also was courageous And one night he got away

  • CHORUSThe Mongols ruled from the backs of their horsesThey were a mighty war machineThe Hans and the Romans couldnt compareTo the greatest Ive ever seen

  • During the late 12th centuryTemujin forged many alliancesBy his personal courage and intense loyaltyHe won the hearts of the menThen in the year 1206 He brought all the tribes togetherThey proclaimed him Ghengis KhanUniversal ruler of them all

  • CHORUSThe Mongols ruled from the backs of their horsesThey were a mighty war machineThe Hans and the Romans couldnt compareTo the greatest Ive ever seen

  • The Mongols were nomads they were awesome with horsesThe hunted to practice their archery skills It was their stirrups that gave such an advantageWhen they shot theyd surely killThey might seem vicious they also had mercyIn amounts equal to their military mightIf you surrendered without resistance Chances are theyd spare you life

  • CHORUSThe Mongols ruled from the backs of their horsesThey were a mighty war machineThe Hans and the Romans couldnt compareTo the greatest Ive ever seen

  • Many people have said bad about the MongolsBut theyre better than their reputation precedesThey were tolerant to other religionsLike Hinduism Buddhism and ChristianityThey helped to make trade systems growBy provided protection on the Silk RoadIf you submitted to their ruleTheyd let you govern yourselves
