The prominent years, of which did last Great heights of power, of centuries past According to legend, thy Rome we build Twin brothers afore, o’ Remus killed

O’ city of Rome, of which we name A land of power, government, fame A laurel wreath, for emperors made Make way Augustine, we shall invade

Proud legions stand, march with thy sword Set up camp, in one accord Hilltops on high, settlement surround Excavated objects found

We bind the law, of which was spoke Of magistrates power, enforce, evoke Writings carved, upon thy stone Papyrus, bronze, of Latin alone

Villas remain, a courtyard near Mosaic art, yet to revere Myths and legends, they chose per se God and goddess, a role to play

The Colosseum, the serious wars O’ re-enact at theatre doors Horses trotting, yet at a pace The circus held, thy chariot race

Lend a penny, now let us bath Thy mineral water, water wave As strigils scrape, upon thy skin With lavish oil, thy slave rub-in

A solid cause, bring to effect Our empire built, we shall protect Provinces, lands, we captured all Stood to defend, afore thy fall
