lyrics

Far and wide as the eye can wander
Heath and bog are everywhere
Not a bird sings out to cheer us
Oaks are standing gaunt and bare

We are the Peat Bog Soldiers
We´re marching with our spades to the moor
We are the Peat Bog Soldiers
We´re marching with our spades to the moor

Up and down the guards are marching
No one, no one can go through
Flight would mean a sure death facing
Guns and barbed-wire greet our view

We are the Peat Bog Soldiers
We´re marching with our spades to the moor
We are the Peat Bog Soldiers
We´re marching with our spades to the moor

But for is there is no complaining
Winter will in time be past
One day comes our liberation
"Homeland, dear, you´re mine at last"

No more the Peat Bog Soldiers
Will go marching with our spades to the moor
No more the Peat Bog Soldiers
Will go marching with our spades to the moor

Wir sind die Moorsoldaten und ziehen mit dem Spaten ins Moor
Wir sind die Moorsoldaten und ziehen mit dem Spaten ins Moor
Wir sind die Moorsoldaten und ziehen mit dem Spaten ins Moor
Wir sind die Moorsoldaten und ziehen mit dem Spaten ins Moor
