The lyrics to a famous Turkish Battle March tune

“A thousand horsemen raiding, we were joyful like children;
A thousand horsemen, we beat a huge army that day!
White helmeted commander screamed: ahead!
We crossed Danube in procession on a summer day…
We striked like lightning from seven directions,
Like a lightning, following Turkish riders.
One day full galloping on our horses,
We lifted up from earth seven layers to sky…
We see red roses of heaven blooming today,
That crimson vision still trembles in our minds!
A thousand horsemen raiding, we were joyful like children;
A thousand horsemen, we beat a huge army that day!
