I'll don my finest garb again
Go canvas camping with my friends
Sit 'round the fire 'til moonlight's end
When they reopen all the wars

When they reopen all the wars
When they reopen all the wars
We'll all join hands and sing once more
When they reopen all the wars

I'll give a hug to sweet Cataline
Hear Drix's trumpet bright and keen
Broad, wild smiles shall be seen
When they reopen all the wars

When they reopen all the wars
When they reopen all the wars
We'll all join hands and sing once more
When they reopen all the wars

We'll hunt Atlantia's Bloodguard strong
And face down Northshield's armored throng
And die in battle all day long
When they reopen all the wars

When they reopen all the wars
When they reopen all the wars
We'll all join hands and sing once more
When they reopen all the wars

We'll fight the Midrealm dragon green
Then with hot soup our band convene
And sit Grand Court with King & Queen
When they reopen all the wars

When they reopen all the wars
When they reopen all the wars
We'll all join hands and sing once more
When they reopen all the wars

We'll raise a glass, fear to dispel
And one for those who kept us well
And raise one more for those who fell
When they reopen all the wars

When they reopen all the wars
When they reopen all the wars
We'll all join hands and sing once more
When they reopen all the wars

When they reopen all the wars
When they reopen all the wars
We'll all join hands and sing once more
When they reopen all the wars

[MODIFIED FINAL CHORUS FOR WHEN THIS IS ALL OVER]
Now they've reopened all the wars
They've reopened all the wars
We all join hands and sing once more
For they've reopened all the wars
