Fighting hamsters from the sky,
Some will live and some will die;
hamsters have nothing to fear,
The fighting hamsters of Calontir.

Silver tape upon their backs,
A broadsword is all they lack;
Fifty hamsters fight a war,
They won't win without fifty more.

Trained by jumping off the roof,
Trained in combat -- tooth to tooth;
hamsters fight both far and near,
The fighting hamsters of Calontir.

Riding high upon our helms,
Their war-cry -- it overwhelms;
All opponents become weak,
At their fearsome "squeaky-squeak".

Back at home, Pavel waits,
His fighting hamster has met his fate;
He has died drinking beer,
The fighting hamster of Calontir.

Estrella verse:
Once again, it's off to war,
This time we number a dozen more; (alt: but a score)
We will fight for those in need,
So this year it's with Caid. (alt:Once again,...)

Fighting hamsters jump from planes,
Fighting hamsters fall like rain;
Some will live, but most will die,
Stupid creatures cannot fly!
