Saladin, The Eagle of the Desert

The eagle of the desert
Saladin roamed and hunted
Crushing the invaders
Holding audience
With those seeking justice
His way was good
His strength was great
And the rule of the fair
Echoes his name

None who stood before him
Could doubt he was the one
Who'd lead Islam to victory
Over the invaders
Franks, and Germans
Spaniards and more
Sought to plant their banner
Where Christ died

But he led the resistance
He overcame the tide
And sent back the knights
With the metal hides
