Manfred Mann's Earth Band – 5 4 3 2 1 lyrics

5-4-3-2-1 (x7), (1st time slowly)
Always onward rode the six hundred (5-4-3-2-1)
Down the valley on their horses they thundered (5-4-3-2-1)
Ah but was it them who really blundered (5-4-3-2-1)
Uh huh, it was the Manfreds'

5-4-3-2-1 (x2)
The soldiers waited at the gate for weeks (5-4-3-2-1)
In a wooden horse to the city they sneaked (5-4-3-2-1)
Who let them in, was it the Greeks? (5-4-3-2-1)
Uh huh, it was the Manfreds'

5-4-3-2-1 (x5)
Uh huh, it was the Manfreds'
5-4-3-2-1 (slowly)
