Genghis Khan by Dschinghis Khan

Tonight has seen the Eurovision song contest. I hate this contest, but while I was researching this piece I came across this song from the 1979 edition, which unjustly came in only fourth.

Hu, ha, hu, ha… hu, ha, hu, ha…

Hu, ha, hu, ha… hu, ha, hu, ha…

Hu, ha, hu, ha, hu, ha, hu, ha…

They rode the fastest horses

Left the wind behind

Thousand men

Ha, hu, ha…

And one man led the way

The others followed by:

Genghis Khan

Ha, hu, ha…

They gallopped over mountains and desert-sands

They carried desolation throughout the land

And nothing there could stop them in this world

Hu, ha…

Gen… Gen… Genghis Khan

Hey, rider; ho, rider; go, rider

Let us follow

Gen… Gen… Genghis Khan

Hey, brother; ho, brother; hey, brother

Hear us holler

Who cares where we’re going

Ho, ho, ho, ho…

There’s no way of knowing

Ha, ha, ha, ha…

And we’ll let the Devil take our souls

Gen… Gen… Genghis Khan

Hey, rider; ho, rider; go, rider

Let us follow

Gen… Gen… Genghis Khan

Go, brother; dream, brother; dance, brother

Hear us holler

You can hear his laughter

Ho, ho, ho, ho…

Now and ever-after

Ha, ha, ha, ha…

When he lifts his glass up in the air

He was the greatest lover

And the strongest man

Of his day

Ha, hu, ha…

And we have heard that

All the women fell for him

So they say

Ha, hu, ha…

And he bred seven children in one whole night

He had his girls around him at his very sight

And nothing that could stop him in this world

Hu, ha…

Gen… Gen… Genghis Khan

Hey, rider; ho, rider; go, rider

Let us follow

Gen… Gen… Genghis Khan

Hey, brother; ho, brother; hey, brother

Hear us holler

Who cares where we’re going

Ho, ho, ho, ho…

There’s no way of knowing

Ha, ha, ha, ha…

And we’ll let the Devil take our souls

Gen… Gen… Genghis Khan

Hey, rider; ho, rider; go, rider

Let us follow

Gen… Gen… Genghis Khan

Go, brother; dream, brother; dance, brother

Hear us holler

You can hear his laughter

Ho, ho, ho, ho…

Now and ever-after

Ha, ha, ha, ha…

When he lifts his glass up in the air

Ha… hu, ha, hu…

And as an extra treat we have the spoof group Bad News and their Warriors Of Genghis Khan:
