LOVE PEACE, BUT FOR WAR BE
READY.
You landsmen are weakly prating
That our island needs no defence; You'd trust that no foes are hating
Our power; that's want of sense; But to this be our statesmen steady,
However you prate and fuss, Love peace, but for war be ready,
For that's the motto for us.
But fools and madmen are longing
That we shall be forced to fight; If you say, Ave want Avar, you're wronging
Our wishes that long for right; But to this be our statesmen steady,
Whoever may prate and fuss, Love peace, but for Avar be ready,
For that's the motto for us.
