The Atrocity Song Burn the town and kill the people Throw a baby from a steeple rob and steal and what we take will Aid our victory. We will mutilate the dying Scalp the wounded, skin the crying Burn their barns and while they're frying We'll sit down to tea. From the highest roof top (stomp stomp) You shall hear a pin drop (stomp stomp) We came down, wiped out the town Made off with all the livestock and the corn crop (stomp stomp) Rob and kill and give no quarter Piss into the drinking water Kill the fathers rape the daughters Rangers All Are We! This is another "Ranger Song" from the American Revolution Bicentennial. Again, it is of modern origin with an ancient tune. (Sung to Men of Harlech) XX apr97
